The McArthurGlen East Midlands Designer Outlet has opened a new Changing Places toilet at the centre, following customer feedback regarding the existing facilities.
Changing Places bathrooms contain specialist equipment and more space enabling thousands of disabled people across the country the opportunity to get out and about and enjoy the day-to-day activities many take for granted. The new unit will not only provide visitors to East Midlands Designer Outlet and the local area with access to these much-needed facilities, but the centre’s close proximity to Junction 28 of the M1 will also provide respite to those travelling up and down the country.
The room can be accessed with a RADAR key and includes an adjustable hand basin and adjustable and mobile changing bed with a hoist.
Paul Tyler, centre manager, said: “We have always been committed to offering our customers the best possible experience when visiting East Midlands Designer Outlet and the addition of this new Changing Places toilet is a welcome extension to that.
“We hope that it will not only offer regular customers a helping hand, but that it will also be an opportunity for those from the local community and further afield to have access to these much-needed facilities.”
