Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The statute does not actually state how much space should be between the gondolas and even though you have a bell and will assist a handicapped person so they do not have to come in, your store under the Americans with Disabilities Act is supposed to be accessible to those with disabilities. Typically 36 inches is the width that allows a wheelchair to pass, but many scooters and chairs will pass through 30 inches. So you cannot exclude people who are handicapped with the bell, but you need to make one space wide enough for the person with a wider device to access your store.
