Some handicapped spaces removed

Posted: Friday, November 16, 2007

If any of you handicapped people have noticed, Fred Meyer has done away with its "handicapped" parking spaces across from the main entrance, leaving them only at each end - miles away from restrooms, the pharmacy, the jewelry, etc.

I can think of no other business in Juneau that does not have main entrance handicapped parking spots.

I talked with someone in the Fred Meyer manager's office and was informed that he has no intention of changing the spaces back to handicap parking. I then contacted a city worker, who was shocked that Fred Meyer chose to do this, which apparently is not against the law. It's courtesy to customers.

If a big business such as this does not consider the needs of its customers, maybe they don't need the customers.

It is easy to shop at Wal-Mart, and it's very accessible. How do you feel about this?
