Shopping From a Wheelchair User's Perspective

Many people don't realize the unique struggles that wheelchair shoppers face, or they mistakenly believe that mobility scooters meet wheelchair shoppers' needs. Here's a view of grocery shopping from a wheelchair user's perspective:

  1. We don't go anywhere without our chairs—they're our legs.
  2. Transferring from a chair to a scooter in public is hard and sometimes impossible.
  3. Wheelchairs are expensive and highly customized—what if it's stolen?
  4. If a scooter breaks down, we're stranded: it's scary, embarrassing, and unsafe.
  5. Reaching merchandise at the bottom of a shopping cart can be difficult.
  6. Pushing a full shopping cart from a wheelchair is hard. Try it.
  7. Small baskets don't hold much, and carrying them can be impossible.
  8. Where do we put our merchandise? (see 6 & 7)
  9. Wheeling around a superstore is difficult and exhausting.
  10. Mobility scooters are not an option for wheelchair users. (see 1, 2, 3, & 4)
