Directors of PAWS

I’M SORRY I have been so long thanking Walmart for the new wheelchairs. I wrote a letter to the editor about the problems I was having finding a wheelchair for my handicapped granddaughter, who loves to shop there and can tell me the exact aisle anything I need is on.

I want to also thank the person who sent my letter to the general manager of the Muskogee Walmart store, Brian Wallace, who contacted me personally about my letter. I have never spoken to a nicer gentleman. He assured me he would get new wheelchairs, and now we have plenty. It’s such a relief to go in the door and see them, instead of having to look for one and many times having to leave because none were available.

Thanks again Mr. Wallace, and my granddaughter, Jenna Bowen, says thank you as well. Walmart is very fortunate to have you working for them and getting things done.
