Seriously? Well then, they just lost my business, I was planning on getting birthday party supplies for my son and daughters summer parties. Forget it now!

Plus, I wrote an email last night and this is their reply:<br><br>
I apologize for the incident that happened in one of the IParty stores. However, we are website only and are no longer affiliated with the stores. If you wish, you may voice your concern to the Corporate Office at 781-355-3717.<br><br>

Just wanted to mention, that from reading the article it seems like the management company has already apologized, said the store manager was wrong, and intends to institute management training to make managers aware of accomodating breastfeeding.<br><br>
Now, in my book, I'm not sure what else I expect the company to do, but to make good on their promises.<br><br>
I'll be focusing my efforts supporting the MA Laws (and the upcoming Lobby Day) to ensure that there is some accountability when things like this happen.<br><br><b><span style="font-family:Arial;">Mom told to stop breast-feeding</span></b><br><a href="http://enterprise.southofboston.com/articles/2007/04/24/news/news/news09.txt" target="_blank"><span style="color:#000080;"><span style="font-family:Arial;"><span style="color:#800080;">http://enterprise.southofboston.com/articles/2007/04/24/news/news/news09.txt</span></span></span></a><br><br><span style="color:#000080;"></span>
