Shopper defends Bluffton store owner

I have taken my mother, who is in a wheelchair, to the store in Bluffton several times. The owner/manager has always been courteous

Dear Editor:

I have taken my mother, who is in a wheelchair, to the store in Bluffton several times. The owner/manager has always been courteous and helpful. For example, she blocks off a corner of the store for Mom to use as a dressing room and asks the other customers to please stay away from the area for a while. No one has ever complained.

The owner is also helpful beyond expectations by bringing items to my mother for her approval and for her to try on, as this is extremely difficult for her.

Yes, the aisles are narrow but unless the clothing has been dropped on the floor it is impossible to be marked by wheelchair tracks. We have always found the store to be neat, clean and well kept.

If it weren’t for this business my mother and many of her friends who live in Rimbey would find it next to impossible to shop for their clothing.
