My local Asda only offers the wheelie baskets shown here:
I suppose under normal circumstances, these would do nicely but what if you’re in a wheelchair? I find these impossible to use for a few reasons:
- Not easy to steer around the store and manoeuvre your own chair.
- When at checkout, I’m unable to reach into the basket as it sits on the floor.
- Or they are too big and clumsy to put on your lap.
So I contacted Asda via Twitter and to my surprise, they responded: “Thank you for getting back to us! The store manager has advised as they are only a supermarket they only get wheely baskets, however, he has put in a request for the regular baskets! Fingers crossed the baskets will be available soon”.
This is great if it happens! I will keep you updated.
One thing bugs me though in their reply. They say because they are only a supermarket they get wheely baskets??? Is that not what supermarkets do?? Supply shopping baskets for their customers??
This store now have many baskets that I can use on my lap……..Result!!!!
