Valley woman pushes to get adaptive shopping carts in Arizona

A child seat in a shopping cart is probably something you take for granted.

But if your child has special needs, as they grow, you'll find the seats are not made for them.

One Valley mom is trying to get these adaptive shopping carts to our state.

The carts let you slide kids in rather than lift them over.

Courtney Burnett's daughter has cerebral palsy.

“If my husband is with me we'll try to lift her up and over but it's definitely a two man job."

Burnett says this would make shopping much easier, and affect where she and other special needs families choose to spend their money.

Other stores across the country have added them.

If you feel your community could benefit from adaptive carts, check out Caroline's website, print off the page and take it your local Fry's, Target or Walmart.

The more people that ask for it the more likely the store is to add it!
