Kroger Offers Specialized Cart in Michigan

NORTHVILLE, Mich. — Kroger will offer Caroline’s Cart, a shopping cart designed to carry disabled children and adults, at a store here, its first to carry the cart, according to the Caroline’s Cart Facebook page.

“We have been working with Kroger for several months and they have been very supportive of Caroline’s Cart,” said the Facebook post. Caroline’s Cart was developed by Drew Ann Long, Alabaster, Ala., whose 12-year-old daughter, Caroline, has Rett syndrome, a neurodevelopment disorder.

Caroline’s Cart is now available at more than 50 stores across 12 states, according to the Facebook page, which has fueled awareness among shoppers with special-needs family members.

“If you shop at this location, thank the store manager and also please share this on your wall so we can spread the news in Northville,” said the post. Long and her team are also working with the Northville Chamber of Commerce and schools to raise awareness.

Kroger did not respond to a request for comment.
