Rethinking the Grocery Store: Inclusive Wayfinding System for Visually Impaired Shoppers in Grocery Stores
Khattab, Doaa (2015) Rethinking the Grocery Store: Inclusive Wayfinding System for Visually Impaired Shoppers in Grocery Stores. [MRP]
Many people with disabilities face considerable barriers while shopping in grocery stores. One such barrier is that they cannot find their way around easily, especially when they visit the grocery store for the first time and have not yet built a cognitive map in their memory. They may also experience delays in finding the right product or waiting for assistance from store employees, thus leading them to rely on family, friends, relatives, or volunteers to help them with their shopping. Problems start when these people are not available, in which case the individual is forced to cancel their visit to the grocery store and reschedule the trip.
