I am absolutely disgusted by the amount of shops within most of our high streets that are not accessible for wheel chair users.
I am interested in starting a campaign to resolve this issue through marleting a threshold ramp specifically designed to provide access to such premises at a cost of approx £40 per threshold.
Are shopowners not aware that by offering access to wheelchairs will mean consistant repeat business from the user due to the majoerity of shops wiithout access.
I recently visited a shopping centre and showed our portable ramp. Shop owners were amazed at the ease of how the ramp could be built in minutes and how easy it was for wheelchairs to access the shop, after 27 visits I sold 14 ramps.
The ramps are able to be made to most threshold sizes upto 180mm. can be picked up at the end of the day and stored internally, can also be taken apart and built to fit another threshold, can be taken on holiday can even be cut to fit in thocse awkward areas of the door.
I truly believe that shop owners will purchase this item because of the cost.
I need help on how to get in touch with as many shop owners as possible to help wheelchair uses.
Please let me have your ideas.
Thanks in advance
