As a fellow parent of a child with cerebral palsy I too am "angry and disappointed" by the store spokesman's actions. Our child does not have a service dog, but we may get one for her in the future (she's only 22 months old). It is disheartening to know that as she gets older we can expect this type of neanderthal attitude. This family and specifically this young girl has faced enough trauma and adversity; going into a store should not add to their challenge. As a Wilmington resident I feel this story reflects poorly on the community.
