Dollar General installs blind-friendly POS equipment
GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. Dollar General announced that it has begun installing new point of sale equipment that will protect the privacy of Dollar General shoppers with visual impairments.
The new devices have tactile keys arranged like a standard telephone keypad. They will allow Dollar General shoppers who have difficulty reading information on a touch screen to privately and independently enter their PIN and other confidential information.
Dollar General has installed the first tactile devices at several stores in Texas. The new equipment will be installed in all of Dollar General’s 8,300 stores in the United States in less than eighteen months.
Lela Behee, a blind Dollar General shopper from Texas, was excited about the company’s announcement: “I really enjoy shopping at Dollar General, and now feel confident that I can enter my PIN myself, even though I cannot see the touch screen. I wish more retailers would follow Dollar General’s example.”
