The Disabilities Rights Center has settled a case against the Henniker Pharmacy concerning accessibility for people with mobility impairments. Under this settlement agreement, the Henniker Pharmacy has agreed to take several corrective actions to bring the store into compliance with the ADA Accessibility Guidelines
The plaintiffs, Thomas Cagle and Gail McLeod, sued because the entrance to the store and seating at the lunch counter was inaccessible.
The store has agreed to provide at least one fully accessible entrance to the store, at least one van accessible parking space, an accessible pharmacy transaction counter, lunch counter, and merchandise aisles, in addition to other modifications.
Since the building is a historic building, the agreement includes the stipulation that modifications will not threaten or destroy the historic significance of the building.
The Henniker Pharmacy is to be commended for its commitment to accessibility.
