Supermarket to sell mobility aids in-store

A supermarket chain in the UK has confirmed that it is to start selling mobility aids in its stores.

Asda is working with Mobilease on the new range of products, which includes items such as wheelchairs and walking sticks.

The mobility specialist said it hopes this move will help people to overcome the "stigma" attached to disability.

Spokesperson Dermot McLaughlin also noted that selling the items in supermarkets should make it simpler for people to obtain products they need, as they are not easy to obtain at the moment.

He commented: "The very products that are created to make life easier for people have been cursed by a strange irony - they are unnecessarily difficult to access."

Pamela Martin, senior buyer at the Wal-Mart-owned retail chain, added that the products are likely to be "incredibly important" for a large number of its customers.
