Retailer Mobility Solutions described footfall at its pop-up shop at Midlands Mobility Day recently as “non-stop” as 650 guests descended on Twycross Zoo in an equipment frenzy.
Suppliers made use of Mobility Solutions’ presence which exhibited at the event alongside sister brand Allied Mobility.
Showcasing their products were Scooterpac, Pride Mobility, Quantum Rehab UK, Topro, Pharmaouest, Stanley Handling, Padders, Helping Hands, NHC Adjustment Beds and Suite Options.
A statement from Mobility Solutions read: “We were lucky enough to be able to showcase a wide range of mobility products from a number of suppliers who were present at the event.
“We always provide a wide range of suppliers to give our guests multiple options and to showcase what the market has to offer.
“The footfall in our pop-up shop was non-stop all day, with many guests trying and buying products to take home that day.
“There were plenty of opportunities to get involved in activities and competitions on the day, creating a fun atmosphere throughout the event.”
Meanwhile, Allied Mobility showcase its entire range of new and used wheelchair accessible vehicles including the Ford Independence and its drive-from-wheelchair car the Peugeot Impulse.
The statement concluded: “The feedback we received proved what a successful event the Midlands Mobility Day was. Guests commented on the ‘ease of access’ around the exhibits and venue itself, the refreshments available and the ‘wide range of mobility products available to view’.”
Earlier this year Mobility Solutions opened a new specialist shoe shop concept within its Glasgow superstore, which aims to offer an alternative to high street shoe stores and mobility retail outlets with a limited selection.
Mobility Solutions’ shop-in-shop features a diagnostics machine to help specify the correct footwear for customers, who need a solution to problems such as bunions and swollen feet.
