Delight at chair

Have your say

FOR those who have kept up with my complaints about the large and small shops who have taken away their courtesy chairs, good news for a change.

First, let me reiterate the complaint I have about the many shops in the town, who refuse to acknowledge there are many people like me who look able-bodied, and those who are obviously elderly or even heavily pregnant, who can’t find a chair to sit on when shopping in their shops.

No-one who does not have disability can know how agonising it is not to be able to walk very far without a chair to sit on.

This is especially true if one is browsing, as in when choosing a book. For years, I have complained to shop managers, only to be told it’s against their policy because of health and safety.

Who’s health, who’s safety?

However, imagine my delight when entering a book shop in Montague Street to find a small leather chair, put there for people such as myself.

I am delighted at this common-sense approach to customers who now have the option of sitting down while choosing a book.

I’d like to express a sincere thank-you to the management and hope other shops will take note.

This courtesy will probably add to your profits, plus spread a bit of good will.
