Hey folks! How are you doing?
Have you been shopping at grocery stores that require you to Bag your own purchases? I am sure there are a few different brands, the ones that I know of are No Frills & Food Basics.
If you have shopped there, or other You Bag stores, I am sure you packed quickly and left speedily.
A person with disabilities can bag quickly, while others can be slow. It depends on the persons arm strength, flexibility, balance and such. I am no scientist, I do know that each person with a disability is different and has their own limitations.
So, why am I shocked to read a CBC article that a explains about a No Frills store in Alberta that banned a disabled woman from the store just because she bags her groceries at a very slow rate?
This is outright discrimination!
I cannot comment anymore without bringing up Deaf-Blind shopping, and the Check-Out is an issue worth of its own blog.
In the meantime, please check out the CBC.ca article!
