Note to stores: People with disabilities have money, too

Retailers need to make more room for those in scooters and wheelchairs.

I notice myself and quite a few others shopping on disability scooters nowadays.

I recently knocked off a ‘sales item wall’ in a drug store post office as I was attempting to get to the counter – there was no room for me to get close.

I felt the anger of the staff person, indeed. I look longingly into so many stores but cannot enter as the door is not disability equipped.

I see sales on sidewalks so bunched together that there is, again, no room for me to shop with out fear of knocking things down.

I am so excited to have this scooter, as I was housebound before it. I could not shop. But my excitement is lowered every time I can not get into a store.

Please attempt to accommodate the disabled to shop at your store. I (we) have money too. Thank You.
