Hollister Nurse-in an "Eyesore": Mothers are Pissed
Love it or hate it: in most states women are allowed to breastfeed in public. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of that fact--restaurant, store, and mall managers included. Being that the majority of the population is not well versed in breastfeeding law, mothers with their boobs out tend to get involved in awkward situations.
On Saturday January 5, there was a protest organized at the Hollister store regarding a mother's right to breastfeed her child. Two officers from a security agency that works with the Mall responded to the protest in a manner that the protesters have indicated was inappropriate. These two officers have been removed from the Mall pending further investigation. The Concord Mall has never had an issue with any mother breastfeeding her children in the Mall and intends to fully comply with the law permitting this activity. We apologize to our customers and tenants and the protesters for any inconvenience this situation may have caused. The Concord Mall is making every effort to properly train all officers regarding a mother's right to breastfeed her child.
