I went to 3 today (long story, posted in MA forum-- but I had to get my cell phone fixed)
Kingston MA was very supportive-- 3 mommas there (me, Grumpyshoegirl, Boobyfeeder). I talked to the manager when I was leaving, gave her the press release and my MA NiP legislaton info (below) and Hathor's cartoon. Told them I thought VS needed nursing/maternity bras. She agreed-- she nursed her kids-- when they are hungry you need to feed them, were her words. All the sales girls loved kids/babies and told me that they love it when they get to see them in the store--- even my 26 month old who was racing aroudn trying to climb on or throw everythign.
I didn't get to the next 2 malls till well after 2, but since I ended up in the mall to check out my cell phone I figured why the heck not stop by. I dropped off my press release and NIP info after telling the employees that I stopped by because I had to stop by the mall and wanted to drop off my info on the reason their was a nurse in and show my support. Hingham was polite but not overly friendly. Braintree (South Shore Mall) staff was much friendlier.
I ran into a mom on my way into the Kingston store, and she stopped me because she noticed my shirt and loved it. I gave her my info and Amy had run into her earlier. When I mentioned the VS incident she was shocked that it had occurred and I bet she'll call about the NIP law.
