New trol­leys to as­sist kids

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

NEW su­per­mar­ket trol­leys are be­ing rolled out at Coles in Mt Druitt and St Marys, to help par­ents and car­ers of chil­dren with dis­abil­i­ties.

The trol­leys are the re­sult of three years of re­search by the su­per­mar­ket gi­ant to de­sign and man­u­fac­ture a trol­ley that can pro­vide more sup­port for par­ents and car­ers.

The trol­ley al­lows for a child of up to 70kg, and has pad­ding on the sides, a har­ness and ad­di­tional sup­port in its struc­ture.

Coles spokesman Andy Cole­man said it had re­ceived pos­i­tive feed­back from its cus­tomers about the trol­leys.

“We want to help our cus­tomers to shop eas­ily at our stores. The trol­ley en­sures that par­ents and car­ers no longer need to jug­gle a wheel­chair and shop­ping bas­ket dur­ing their shop at Coles,” Mr Cole­man said.

“It means they are able to place all their gro­ceries in a trol­ley while also hav­ing their child seated safely.”

The ad­di­tional-needs trol­ley is avail­able from the cus­tomer ser­vice desk.
