Imagine attempting to push a grocery cart while at the same time, pushing your child’s wheelchair through narrow isles of a grocery store.  Drew Ann Long, mother of a special needs child, was desperate for a solution to this dilemma and ended up creating “Caroline’s Cart”.  Recently Disability Scoop shared a story about Wegman’s, a grocery store chain that recently placed similar carts at all of it’s stores.  Retail stores like Target, Wal-Mart and Best Buy all have Caroline’s Cart’s available as well.

Availability in Fargo

Luckily, carts like these are not unique to retail stores.  Local grocery stores Family Fare, Hornbacher’s and Cash Wise have these carts available.  As a matter of fact, Hornbacher’s has had them available for over a year now at all of their Fargo and Moorhead locations.

Game Changer

Drew Ann Long wrote a book about her experience called ‘Game Changer‘ and it is book that’s worth a look.
