Dollar Generalís New Point of Sale Equipment Praised by Blind Community

 

 

Dollar General, a national discount retailer with more than 8,000 stores in 35 states, today announced that it will be installing  tactile point of sale devices in all its stores so that customers who are blind and visually impaired can independently enter their PIN when using a point of sale device.  The announcement is the result of an agreement the company negotiated with the American Council of the Blind, the American Foundation for the Blind, and a blind Dollar General customer.  The settlement was reached without litigation using Structured Negotiations and was negotiated by Linda Dardarian and Lainey Feingold.
