Bridgehead To Install Stroller Flap Doors

Stroller & parent exit Bridgehead through the new flap door.
Ottawa - Bridgehead locations in the Westboro and Wellington West areas will have new stroller friendly flap doors installed over the coming weeks that allow stroller pushing parents to easily enter and exit the facility without clogging typical door entries.

The hinged door flaps operate in much the same manner as pet flap doors, with a stroller being pushed into the door flap that hinges open, allowing the stroller and pushing parents to enter the Bridgehead with ease. Previously, entry to the Bridgehead was plagued with multiple over-sized strollers being jammed into the doorway, with many non-stroller customers being run over, or forced to hold open the doors for the stroller and pusher. Congestion at the doors is now removed and stroller traffic will be able to enter and exit Bridgehead using the new flap doors.

"I used to spend 15 minutes trying to manoeuvre my $1200 stroller into Bridgehead, and injuring at least 2 people in the process." exclaimed stroller pusher Tammy Gorling, who visits Bridgehead twice a day on her way to Lululemon in Westboro. "Now I can just push my stroller through the flap and be in there getting my infused latte without all the hassle." Golring remarked. 

Bridgehead says the new flap doors should be in full operation by the end of the week, and hopes strollers of both babies and pets will allow customers to avoid any past unpleasant door entry incidents. "These new flap doors will allow customers to get their lattes with greater ease, and allow non-stroller customers to avoid injury." explained Bridgehead Manager of Operation Janet Sprague. "The stroller flap doors also facilitate thesis writers that may need to dolly in their home office to set up their thesis writing in our store." Sprague explained.
