    Default Kids shops with stairs!

    This is a vent! Why oh why do kids shops exist that have a bunch of stairs and no ramp access when the majority of their clientele are parents with prams???

    I recently encountered quite a large chain shop (that should know better) that had a really large flight of stairs at the front and no ramp access. Then today I drove half an hour to a boutique kids store only to find that when I got there it was on multiple levels all accessible only by stairs. I turned around and drove the half an hour back home - empty handed. My bub is with me all the time so if there is no pram access I can't shop.

    I just don't get it.

    Or when they have the aisles so narrow you can't push a pram around the shop without knocking things off the shelves.

    OP did you ask the stores if they have a lift? It might be hidden away.

    No, no lift. The big store had a doorbell and a small sign asking you to ring it for a sales assistant to come and help you lift your pram up the flight of stairs. Not the most convenient solution really considering there were only two sales people - it just boggles my mind.

    And the boutique store was quite small - but with steps to enter the store as well as internal steps up to the level where most of the stock was.
