Leibman’s Fails to Pass

Leibman’s on Memorial disappointed me big time when they made passages between displays so narrow my wheelchair could not even GET INTO ANY AISLE IN THE STORE  and the entrance was blocked by boxes of wine with bottles on top. With one wheel I could have turned the first aisle a Christmas wine red.  The wine manager asked me if I was leaving when he saw that I couldn’t detour through the wine department. He showed  me to the automatic door. I have shopped at Leibman’s for  years, so I was sorry they failed to pass muster for a person in a wheelchair. Their great handicap parking spot is right by that front door. Narrow passageways were not created out of malice, but were done thoughtlessly. Nice folks: become aware. And we spend money, too.

About Naomi

I am a writer and Christian educator who works in several genres with a specialty in materials for persons with disabilities. The Long Road Home Romance Collection includes one of my books (11/14), and I just finished the first draft of a Quick Look handbook to help persons who teach an inclusive classroom. I love playing and listening to classical music, fishing, doing family things, and, in spite of my non-interest in identifying birds, have come to name them because of my bird watching husband, Bob. My children and grandchildren, because of their expertise in different fields, have broadened my lens for looking at the world.
