PURPLE SHOPPERS FAQ
Most frequent questions and answers
We know that there are lots of special days set aside for people with disabilities, for example; Quiet Hour, Purple Tuesday etc. Most of these events are either at inconvenient times such as very early in the morning, and it is normally just for a couple of hours of the day. A lot of the time not all the shops are open because they hadn’t signed up for the special event. Also shops are not fully prepared as they may not have had training on each and every need for those with disabilities.
This app can give you the freedom to shop how you want, when you want to shop and at a time that suits you. They are also aware of the differing needs that each and every person that uses the app to come through their doors will need. This will then enable them to give a personal shopping experience and a much more efficient service.
The app will tell you all the shops in your chosen location. You can then select the profile of the shop you would like to go to. Then select a quiet time or you can contact the shop through the app and request another time of your choice (Business owners are not obligated to agree to the slot you have requested. This will be at their discretion and will depend on how busy they are). When you arrive at the shop whatever adaptation is needed will already be in place e.g a ramp for a wheelchair, light adjustments etc. If you know the item number or your order beforehand you can send them this information through the app and they can have it ready for you. It’s a complete personal tailor-made VIP experience, making experiences a much more pleasurable event.
It is completely FREE and will ALWAYS be completely FREE. We feel that you should not have to pay for what everyone else can do for free.
