A Private Shopping Experience for kids with Special-Needs at The Elly Store
Together with The Elly Store re-branding and launch of our new website, we have decided to offer “Quiet Hour Shopping” to our little community of shoppers. “Quiet Hour Shopping” means we will open the store for an extra hour and a half on two days of each month to privately serve our little customers with special needs; special hours where the store is open only to disabled/autistic/special needs children.
All kids have their own quirks. Especially so for a special-needs child. Some ordinary shopping experiences such as heavy crowd, loud music, overly bright lights and too much choice, might be really distracting or annoying for both parent and child.
And that’s not including things like other people staring and being nosy, or staff not having the time to serve you whilst you’re trying to shop for your child.
In order for you to have a positive shopping experience, Quiet Hour Shopping would mean your child would have:
- Individual, undistracted service
Welcome to The Elly Store
What we can do during your shopping experience is give you one-on-one service and our general advice on what we know works for certain foot shapes or functions. As for clothes shopping, take the time to compare sizing whilst we amuse or watch over your child. We’ll be like your extra hands and eyes.
Our store does not carry specialized products for disabilities. The shoe brands we carry include:
- Livie and Luca
- Old Soles
The variety we have in store is curated carefully for a range of function, design and most importantly comfort. We always strive to choose shoes that are quality-centric and sensitive to little feet.
A wide range of shoes
We’d like to stress that we are no medical experts – just patient, cheery people who would like to offer you our undivided time and attention during that period, which is why we are going to have special private opening hours by appointment only on:
- Tuesday, 16th May 2017 (7:00pm – 8:30pm)
- Saturday, 20th May 2017 (8:30am – 10:00am)
Creating a calm environment
Please send us an email to book your slot so we can ensure we have sufficient team members working that day. We will try to tailor your experience if you’d share with us your concerns (e.g. if you only want your child to get a blue sandal, we’ll pull out all the styles in his size).
Slots are on a first-come-first-serve basis for now, as we try to see how we can accommodate everyone’s requests in the future.
Every child is special, and we can’t wait to meet yours!
x, The Elly Team
