Expectant moms and parents with strollers- park here!

I wish more retailers had a few parking spots for expectant moms and parents with small kids and strollers. Doesn’t this make sense? In my neighborhood the library, which has a parking lot for maybe 50 cars, has 3 dedicated spots.  The local giant mall?  I’ve only seen 4.  The grocery store, which has about 150 spots, has zero.  How many pregnant women are schlepping around doing errands and would kill to have a front row spot some days?  Personally, I really felt ok until just this week when I realized that the closest parking spot to the grocery store was a million miles away.  I tell you, I actually groaned.  It’s not like it’s really that far, but I was already tired and the extra 50 feet seemed like a million miles.  So, a plea to grocery stores, big box stores and strip malls.  Set aside a spot or two for the people in your neighborhood that frequent your shops.  Thank you.
