Mobility retail franchise Ableworld received a nice boost for its Birkenhead outlet recently when the newly-enlarged mobility store was officially opened by Esther McVey MP, the then Minister for Disabled People.
McVey, the MP for Wirral West and now Minister for Employment, was shown around the new store by franchisee Andy Rees and Ableworld’s managing director, Mike Williams, with franchise director Paul Boniface also on hand.
Rees has been operating his mobility store in Park Road North, Birkenhead for more than five years and recently made the decision to increase the size of the store by moving to premises next door. Ableworld’s first franchisee, he has plans to make Birkenhead the flagship store for the company and a “beacon of excellence for mobility in the Wirral”.
Andy is also proud of his innovative Scooter Surgery, which allows customers to actually see their scooter being serviced and offers a free battery check on mobility scooters.
The team in Birkenhead also includes store manager David Ferguson, Lesley Hughes, Denise Stamp and engineer Keith Wright.
