M&S is based in the Showground Retail Park on Sedan Avenue in Omagh. There is a large number of disabled car parking outside the store. Unfortunately though, these parking spaces are often taken by non Blue Badger holders, who do not have disability. It’s one of the poor aspects about this area of Omagh, as it’s a private car park, so it is not monitored as closely as other parking areas in Omagh.
M&S itself, is a large store within the complex. It is one of the largest in Northern Ireland. There is a lot of space inside for moving around in a wheelchair and everything is laid out in such a fashion, that it creates very little obstructions to persons with restrictive movement or a wheelchair.
The staff in the store are excellent. Always ready to help out, where needed. Where that is help around the store with the shopping basket, reaching items which are out of reach for people in wheelchairs, help at the til and taking items back outside to your car.
So whilst there may be certainly difficulties within the store, the staff are always onhand to offer help to overcome them.
