 People who uses strollers as a way to steal out of stores messes it up for everyone else. During Christmas season my mom and I were out shopping with the baby and of course I had my stroller. I tried going into Areopostale but was stopped at the door and was told no strollers were allowed. Then yesterday I needed to go to the grocery store. I don't have a car so I walked to the one closest to my house and when I got up there I was stopped by a big ass sign that says no strollers allowed. I was beyond frustrated that I just walked up to that damn store for nothing.

 I have baby twins in a double stroller (plus a 2 yr old), so I usually don't go anywhere that I can't get my stroller into.

If I only had 1 baby, I would just wear him no problem, but with 2 I NEED a stroller!

The only place I've been that said "no strollers" was the DC zoo--they don't allow them in the indoor exhibits, and that kind of makes sense since the hallways get crowded.

Are you serious? Yea we just skip the inside stuff. It's so annoying.

Quoting egyptian_mommy:

That's so annoying. Especially when the exit is on the opposite side of the building and you have to walk all the way back around to get the stroller. Oh and if you ever go to Old Town, Bertucci's on King St doesn't allow strollers.



Quoting usmcwife.mommy2:

That hasn't happened to us yet. But there are so many signs at the DC zoo that has that signs for indoor stuff... Which is so stupid. Why would I want to leave all my stuff in the artillery to look at animals.

I know that gift shops in museums, zoos etc often don't allow strollers. 

I could never get into our Aero store with the stoller, they have everything way too tight. 

As an honest consumer, I would remember where I could and couldn't go once we were done with thestoller. If they didn't want my money when I had to push one around, they don't deserve it later.

The Aero store I tried going into was rather small and I wouldn't have got upset if when she told me it wasn't allowed there wasn't another couple right there shopping with a stroller. Now had she said "I'm sorry ma'am but your stroller is too big I would have laughed because I know it is and just walkes away. I didn't go off or anything but I was upset when I walked away. But there's another one I went to and it was pretty spacious and I was allowed to take my stroller inside.

Only stores here that don't allow are small so a stroller wouldn't fit

There's a few stores around me that my stroller won't fit through the bars outside the store but if I collapse the stroller to get it through they don't say my stroller isn't allowed thank goodness!
