The Lactation Room in Las Vegas is one of the more popular liquor dispensing spots in the country.
But its shelves are mostly empty.
Lactating women have long been complaining about the lack of products in the store, and its shelves were the site of a 2014 protests by anti-abortion groups.
Now, some women say the liquor store is now a hotbed for misogyny, as women complain about the inability to find products at their preferred store.
In the days since the protests, Lactationship has seen a spike in complaints about the store and a number of other businesses.
The owners have denied the allegations, saying their staff is working 24/7 and they are confident in their customers.
But a few women are still upset about the liquor sales environment.
“It’s been really weird and upsetting.
I’ve had a lot of negative experiences at Lactatorieship,” one woman told Vice News.
“I don’t really understand why you can’t have a safe space and make sure you’re providing the right product.
I just think that they don’t want to have to take responsibility for the environment.
I think the women in this space are really upset that they can’t make an informed choice on whether to purchase a product.
We are the ones who need to make that choice.”
Lactation Lounge’s owner, Mark DeMarco, told Vice the store has been struggling to fill the shelves for months and said he is confident his store is in good hands.
He said his staff has been training new employees on how to navigate the store’s shelves.
“There is definitely a desire in this community to have a good store and to have the right products available, but the reality is we’re a small business that’s not in the biggest market,” DeMarco said.
“We are in the largest market in the United States.”
He said he was pleased with the way his store has handled the protests and that he will continue to hire employees who are ready to be active in the community.
“This is not a place for harassment or discrimination,” he said.
“We are all welcome in this place, we just have to be aware that the majority of our employees are women.”
The Lactational Room was the site for a protest by anti-‘abortion’ groups against the liquor outlet in October.
DeMarco has denied the claims and has not been charged with any crimes.
The owners have also taken steps to address complaints, hiring a new sales representative and updating its policies to make sure it does not allow discrimination.
Lacosports is also taking steps to ensure it is welcoming and accommodating all customers regardless of gender.
The store has also been a frequent venue for rallies.
This past Sunday, LACOSports was hosting a “Black Lives Matter” rally outside the store.
