Before the ramp was installed, shoppers would have to go behind parked vehicles to get from Shoppers Drug Mart to Save-On-Foods.
“Customers of all ages using canes, parents with strollers and little ones, walkers, wheelchairs, or just having difficulty going down steps wanting to go between Shoppers Drug Mart and Save-On-Foods had to go behind parked vehicles,” said Little.
“Many people could not go down the three steps. This created a huge potential for being accidentally run over by a vehicle backing out, especially in the winter. Seeing a need, SONS began pursuing a permanent ramp.”
A temporary wooden ramp installed last year was replaced with a more permanent, steel, grated ramp earlier this month.
“Many thanks to owners of the building, Northwest Properties, the Property Manager for Northgate Mall/Northwest, and Staff at Save-On-Foods for working with SONS to make a difference. We know this will make the trip between Shoppers and Save-On-Foods much safer for all our community members.”
