Bounce Around in Glen Burnie says "No Nursing" - Page 2

post #21 of 29
I did some googling and there are quite a few really negative reports about this place on www.ripoffreport.com, specifically mentioning the owner "Officer Tom".

There is a profile on the Better Business Bureau here

I would encourage everyone to submit their complaints to the BBB as well.

The owner of the business is listed as Principal: Amy Shepeta, Owner. Later in the report, "Tom" is also listed as the owner.

Amy is also listed as the owner of Xtreme Bounce Zone in Millersville which I think closed unexpectedly, in an article snipped from the Maryland Gazette. I did not pay for the entire article, though, and more credible sites seem to list the owner of that establishment as Kim Elder.

Anyway, from all the complaints on the web, it sounds like the owners are not very nice people.

I just read the reviews on ripoff report. Wow! I hope they get shut down soon! And I'm glad no one got hurt at yesterday's event!

I called there this morning and the woman on the phone was rude and hung up on me. I called back and tried to discuss the breastfeeding law with her and I have to say she was ignorant and unwilling to discuss it at all. ( also claimed not to be the owner which she clearly was if the story about what happened at the second incident is correct) Normally I would say publicity and a nurse in at this point, but given the violent tendencies of the owner according to those other reports on ripoffreport.com, I think we would all be safer staying away from them and just spreading the word on all our mama boards online!

Where did you find this info? I can't find any listing of the owners.

I found an article about it in a local paper. They apparently absconded with some folks prepaid funds when they closed as well.

The one I read had a different name for the owner. That's why I was wondering. Do you know which paper it was?
Thanks!

So I know this thread is old, but I just came across it and want to tell everyone that in Maryland you have an absolute right to nurse in public. If challenged, please report the business to the Maryland Attoney General's office: consumer@oag.state.md.us

In reference to the owner of the Extreme Bounce Zone in Millersville that closed, I saw Amy listed as the owner in a snippet from a google search of an article in the Maryland Gazette, http://www.hometownglenburnie.com. The article is now in the archives and you have to pay to get the entire article, which I did not do. I agree the owner's name is listed as someone else on every official site. I'm editing previous post.

Sounds like a place best avoided, regardless of their breastfeeding attitudes.
