If your shop is oriented towards the elderly, pay extra attention to accessibility issues. Many older people have worse vision (requiring larger text and buttons, perhaps higher contrast graphics, and a less cluttered layout) and many have mobility problems (may have trouble pointing to something on the screen, either with a mouse or a finger on a touch screen, and may find keyboard navigation easier or harder). Also make sure your navigation is very straightforward and simple, as very few customers of this age group have grown up immersed in the digital world.

You might want to consider (or survey) if others (caregivers, adult children) are using your site on behalf of the elderly, or that group themselves are using it. This would affect how far you need to go in improving accessibility.
