    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    Pull to open is difficult in a power chair. I can imagine 2 x harder in a manual chair. The stiff auto door closers make it even harder.

    It is within the ADA standards though, as long as the pull force is no more than 5 lb. We use a fish scale to measure that.

    It would be much better with a push button powered door opener though.

    Just a grocery store. They could have put a button on the wall though since this thing started as a hole in the ground for parking.

    Not much space to maneuver. Hopefully the wheeler won't get door-smacked by someone coming out of the opposite door.

    That's reasonable accessibility, IMO.
