Today is Purple Tuesday, a day dedicated to raising awareness of what it’s like to live with a disability, and here at The Westgrove Group, we pledge our support.
With 1 in 5 customers living with a disability, accessibility is more important than ever. Purple Tuesday has been created to recognise the importance and needs of disabled customers and to promote inclusive shopping and improving the customer experience for disabled people, 365 days a year. Taking place to coincide with the run up to the peak Christmas period, the event has been created by disability organisation Purple.
The day will see retailers in stores and online introducing new measures to make shopping a more inclusive experience, sending a powerful message that they care about all their customers and that their business matters to them.
