487 SPAR, EUROSPAR, ViVO, ViVOXTRA and ViVO Essentials stores in Northern Ireland have pledged their commitment to supporting blind and partially sighted people, both in-store and with their already existing next day home delivery service.

RNIB’s best practice guidelines have been circulated to these retailers to help serve and assist blind and partially sighted people who shop in-store and who use its home delivery service.

This service is available now in over 225 SPAR, EUROSPAR, ViVO, ViVOXTRA and ViVO Essential stores across NI and orders can be placed over the phone.

Mark McCammond, Retail Director at Henderson Retail said: “Our stores are in the heart of communities across Northern Ireland and since the start of the lockdown, we have adapted the way we serve our communities by introducing next day home delivery as well as safety and distancing measures in store.

“We appreciate the challenges the more vulnerable in our communities are facing right now, which is why we have communicated RNIB’s guidelines to our stores in order to serve and look after our blind and partially sighted shoppers better in store.

“We’re very proud of how our teams have stepped up in recent weeks to help all members of the community, so we hope that these additional measures enable us to reach even further and ensure everyone feels confident coming to our stores in these challenging times.”
