Report: Hollister must redesign store entrys for accessibility
New York -- A federal judge in Denver gave Hollister Co. until Jan. 1, 2017, to modify its store entrances to make them wheelchair accessible, according to an advocacy group for the disabled, at a rate of 77 stores per year, the Associated Press reported.
The entrances of some Hollister locations are designed to resemble a front porch, complete with steps.
The Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition said the ruling by the judge gives the retailer several options, including leveling out stairs at entrances or installing ramps, according to the report. It also can close off stairway entrances so that all customers, not just those who are disabled, would use secondary entrances.
