ATASCOCITA, Texas (KTRK) - A Texas mom is not happy after a store said her daughter wasn't welcome.
Stay-at-home mom Ashlee (a last name was not provided) said she won't be shopping at Interior Design Warehouse in Atascocita after what happened last week.
"We walked in, we weren't touching anything, and immediately, we were shunned away," she said.
A sign clearly posted on the store's front door says "No Children Please."
"It's not like I walked in with my baby or toddler running around grabbing stuff," Ashlee said. "I walked in with my six-year-old who was perfectly polite."
Store owner Karen Tedford said the police comes from a boy who broke multiple items in the store and whose mother left without paying for the destroyed merchandise.
"And that was the day the sign went on the door," she said.
According to KTRK legal expert Joel Androphy, Tedford is within her rights. Business owners can discriminate within reason, as long as it is justified.
"Not all kids are running through the place terrorizing everything," Ashlee countered.
