Shopping date for Blue Badge holders

ARE you a Blue Badge holder? Or the carer for somebody who has a Blue Badge?

Then put Tuesday, December 6, in your diary and pop down to ESK Superstore in Courtlands Road, 6pm- 8pm as the store is staging a special Christmas shopping and celebration evening.

ESK Managing Director Bob Beevis said, “We will close as normal at 5.30pm but then reopen at 6pm only for Blue Badge holders and their carers.

“They will each receive nibbles and a free drink and, more importantly, have the store to themselves for a couple of hours.

“It can be difficult sometimes for disabled people in particular, if they come into ESK and it is packed with customers.

“ It will give them the chance to come in relative peace and quiet to do their Christmas shopping.

“All we ask is that when you come into the store you show your Blue Badge on arrival.

“We haven’t done this before, but hope it will attract people into ESK.”
