A Facebook page alleging discrimiation at F.O.B. St. Louis in Town and Country's Lamp and Lantern Village tugged at the emotions of many, prompting comments on Facebook and even here on the Town and Country-Manchester Patch site.
The store's owner said the entire incident had nothing to do with discrimination, but was always a safety issue. Despite her side of the story, she received harassing phone calls and visits to her store.
