First Radio Flyer Store Opens With Pluie Installed Ahead of Holiday Shopping Season

November 9, 2023

The flagship store of the beloved legacy brand debuts in Chicago this week

CHICAGO (November 9, 2023) – Just in time for holiday shopping season, Radio Flyer is opening its first retail store this week at Woodfield Mall in the Chicago suburb of Schaumburg, and Pluie self-sanitizing diaper changing tables are installed in the restrooms to elevate the customer experience.

Pluie offers the world’s first and only self-sanitizing changing table for public restrooms and the first major breakthrough in public changing table design since the product’s inception in the 1980’s. The Chicago-based business is on a mission to give all parents and caregivers on the go access to a clean, comfortable, convenient place to change their baby’s diaper. 

Pluie’s Innovation: 

  • Pluie is the world’s first and only self-sanitizing diaper changing table for public restrooms
  • Patented UV-C light technology known to kill 99.9% of germs including influenza, coronavirus, and E. coli activates when the table is closed to sanitize the changing surface in just 60 seconds after each use
  • Multi-purpose handles for hanging diaper bags and purses to keep them off the floor
  • A more comfortable, plush foam leak-proof changing surface
  • Retractable safety strap that stores in a clean zone when not in use
