Fall is just around the corner. Colorful leaves, long sleeves, and soup come to mind but you might also recall the Starbucks Card in Braille released last year during this time. The emblematic card depicted autumn at its essence--orange and yellow, gold-foiled and rusty-colored leaves blew and heaped along the bottom of the card-- made all the better by depicting the word "Starbucks" in Braille at the top. The card was a fast favorite among customers and partners, sighted and blind.
Starbucks quest to create a welcoming environment extends far beyond the accessible design of the stores, beyond the world-class customer service our partners provide - this fall Starbucks stores will again offer this Starbucks Card in Braille. (The card is also available year round online.) But the great doesn't stop there...Starbucks stores in the U.S. and Canada will have a full Large Print and Braille menu. Wait, there's more, each store will also have a Picture Menu from which to point and construct the beverage as nuanced and uniquely yours as your favorite autumn sweater.
Bring on the brisk crisp days and the long shadows! I'm ready.
