Asda doors affect disabled

Sir - I am sure that many Asda customers share the irritations and annoyance expressed by Sheila Archer over the intermittent closure of the revolving door at the town centre end of the store,

(letters July 23), but have the Asda management considered how these unpredictable closures affect their disabled customers?

Disabled parking spaces are provided close to the entrances at each end of the store. However, when the revolving door entrance is closed, many disabled customers then try to park in the other bays near the main entrance. As a result these become quickly filled and it is difficult or impossible to find a space there.

Does the Asda management intend to resolve the contentious issue of the door closures, and the deliberate blocking of access to the aisles as described in Ms Archer's letter?
