New shopping cart for special needs kids

A shopping cart designed by an Alabama mom to help parents navigate stores with special needs children will soon be available to use at one of the country's biggest retailers.

Caroline's Cart is a shopping cart created for special needs children. It provides parents and caregivers a viable option to transport a child through a store while grocery shopping, without simultaneously having to maneuver a wheelchair and a traditional grocery cart. It is named after Caroline, the special needs daughter of Drew Ann and David Long, founders of Parent Solution Group, LLC.

Starting March 19, Target will become the largest supermarket to adopt “Caroline’s Cart.” Target joins a growing list of high profile chains that will be carrying the cart.  This includes Kroger, Whole Foods, Publix,  and more.

Drew Ann’s hope is that one day all retailers will provide an equal opportunity shopping experience for parents and caregivers of special needs children by furnishing them the option of a Caroline’s Cart. All families deserve to have this option, so they can enjoy the freedom of shopping with their special needs child.

"Many stores have approved Caroline's Cart at the corporate level.  If you want your store to have Caroline's Cart ask the manager to order one.  1-800-351-CART," said Long.
