No access to some stores
Why is it that so many businesses in Cape Girardeau and Jackson are not wheelchair accessible? I thought that all businesses had to have some kind of entry for the disabled. There are several places that we'd like to go into, However, they don't have a way for me to get a wheelchair in the store.
I spend money just like everyone else does, but I guess these places don't want my money or they would offer me a way into their business. I think Cape Girardeau and Jackson need to take a look into making sure that all of their business owners offer everyone a way to get inside their stores.
