I have never had a horrible experience at this store, in fact, before they opened the neighborhood market down the street, this was my go-to store. Last night we needed to go shopping for school supplies and get a few other items that the neighborhood market does not have. So we piled up into the van and headed out.I have 4 kids, 3 girls and 1 boy all under the age of 9.Now, while shopping my son and the youngest 2 girls needed to use the restroom. I waited outside the restroom like usual for my son to come out of the mens restroom.He came out, and after doing so an employee came out of the womens restroom and made a comment to me, which I couldn't hear, but it lead me to think the girls needed my help. At this point I needed to use the restroom myself, and as a parent, had an issue leaving my son out of the restroom alone. So I had him come in with me, made sure the girls were okay, there was no one else in the restroom. As I left the restroom, a male employee was waiting for me right outside the door, who informed me my son wasn't allowed in the restroom. He did this in a group of people. Upon me asking if he would rather my child be kidnapped, apparently he would, because he could only tell me that he wasn't allowed in.If this was a teenager I could understand that.What this employee doesn't know is; is there another reason he needed to go in with me he could have a disability, he could of had any number of things happen? I can't go into the mens restroom to handle things, but a CHILD under the age of 10? Seriously?This walmart needs to add in a family restroom, because to my knowledge there isn't one that or else they need to add signs to the restrooms with enterance restrictions.I have had many friends tell me they take their sons with them to the womens room, and even men taking their daughters to the mens restroom with them. Not once have they gotten in trouble.I also feel this employee should of had the conversation in a different location, not in the area in between the men and womens restroom, and definitely not in a group of people. My son, did absolutely no harm by being in that restroom, but had I left him out in the store, I would have been called a bad parent; he could of been kidnapped, he could of freaked out and just ran off. THAT would have caused harm.
My mother is wheelchair bound. When there is a problem with her chair, it is a major problem. She can't get around. She is on Medicare, which we were told by other companies would not cover problems with her chair. We've dealt with different companies and not been satisfied, but Advacare has helped me out more than once. My mothers wheel came off and the nut was lost. It is not just any nut. Advacare gave me 3 different ones and told me one should work. It did and they did not even charge me. Recently the button on the control arm started to go out. They are very expensive. Advacare went out and assessed the chair and within a short period of time (considering the hoops that have to be jumped through), had my mom up and running, or at least her chair. I would recommend this company to anyone. If you've had to wait for people from Kansas City or Olathe and then be disappointed, call these people. They really do care.
