Boston Bombing Survivor Kicked out of T.J. Maxx Because of Service Dog!

Posted July 14th, 2014 @ 8:45am

Wow! As if the survivors didn’t go through enough already, this happens! 

Sydney Corcoran suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, while her mother lost her legs during the Boston Marathon Bombing. She was told to leave a T.J. Maxx after refusing to put her service dog in a carriage. 

She said that her dog is, “crucial to my everyday life” and that the store “made someone with an emotional disorder so much worse.” 

I just don’t get how they could deny a service dog, especially when he had on his service dog vest! 

T.J. Maxx did apologize and release a statement about the incident.
