Store loses sale, respect

I recently took my mom, who is in a wheelchair, for a drive out to shop at a clothing store in Bluffton.

Dear Editor:

I recently took my mom, who is in a wheelchair, for a drive out to shop at a clothing store in Bluffton. Upon arrival, we were discriminated against, with a lady working there making ignorant comments about not having enough room to wheel down aisles, and concerned that we would leave tire marks on her clothes.

Feeling unwelcome, I started wheeling mom out and told the lady she had lost our business, to which she replied, “Fine.”

It astounds me that another human being could be so discriminatory against a person with disabilities. Where you could have made a sale, or gained a customer, you have forever lost that.

Shame on you and your rude actions.

Jenny Ronnie,
