ASDA has become the first Isle of Wight store to offer a Changing Places bathroom, designed for people who have a wide range of disabilities.
The room has an adjustable hoist, changing bench and special toilet, designed to meet standards promoted by the Changing Places campaign.
Store manager Kenny Farrell said: "We're proud that our store is the first Island retailer to offer a Changing Places room to our customers.
"These rooms are a fantastic facility for those with physical and mental disabilities and the whole team here is glad that we're able to provide this space, which will I'm sure, make a massive difference to disabled customers and where applicable, their parents and carers."
There are also Changing Places rooms at County Hall, the Riverside Centre and Downside Community and Learning Centre.
