This Woman Had A Special Need Girl So She Invented Her A Special Shopping Cart!
Viral By Elena Boaghi | September 7, 2017
Many new products are now being developed to help people in scooters and wheelchairs.
Lately, a woman asked her local supermarket “Harris Teeter” if they had the cart that would cater to her mother who is 91-year-old. Her mother likes to go shopping with her but she just can’t walk in the aisles anymore. Luckily, they have a new and very cool product called “Caroline’s Cart.”
Now, the world demands to know all about these special shopping carts, and where they can be found. While “Caroline’s Cart” is the best option for elder citizens in these situations, it was actually developed for children with special needs.
“Caroline’s Cart” is a shopping cart with a large seat built into its base so that adults or children who need a scooter or wheelchair can sit comfortably.
This creation was made by Drew Ann Long. She is a mother who was struggling to handle her daughter Caroline’s wheelchair during shopping, particularly with her 2-year-old son too.
She just wanted to include her daughter in every activity. But she was frustrated because there wasn’t anything on the market that would help her. So she decided to take care of that herself. So she established “Parent Solution Group LLC”, and began designing the cart model with the help of “Technibilt.” Quickly, her dream became true!
Today, the carts are distributed everywhere such stores as Food Lion, Giant, Kroger, Target, Walmart, and more.
Over one million children in the United States are disabled in some capacity. So these chairs are incredibly important to so many parents and caregivers who provide round-the-clock care.
And while many stores around the country currently offer Caroline’s Cart, Drew is hoping that all stores will eventually provide them so families with special needs kids or seniors can shop anywhere with ease.
Look around your favorite store next time, there might already be a Caroline’s Cart kiosk set up for families to enjoy!
If you think every grocery store, mall, commissary, and department store should offer Caroline’s Cart, please SHARE this incredible invention with family and friends on Facebook!
