I feel like this is very important and needed because no matter what, everyone, including people with disabilities need to have access at a grocery store.

This resource has a lot of information but it is laid out in a very understandable way. The pictures of current issues in grocery check stand show what the problem is that needs to be addressed. Then it gives a reminder of the principles of UD as well as ADA and OSHA guidelines, followed by solutions with picture examples.
