Great!
Great!

I was recently in need of a new cane, because the one I had suddenly broke at the end of last week. So my fill-in tutor and I took the train down to the Guild for the Blind Consumer Product Center. The coordinator had stepped out, so he and I sat down and waited for a few minutes. We were finally let in by Polly who works at the Guild. She had me try out a couple canes, and I settled on one. I bought another one to use as a back-up. Polly spoke directly to me and was also very friendly to my tutor. I was there a couple times before and really like it.

Disability Awareness:   Welcoming, Talked to me person-to-person, Asked me if I needed or wanted help, Friendly, Gave me choices, Gave me extra time, Respectful, Helpful when I needed assistance or accommodation, Has employees with disabilities, Flexible service, Physically accessible, Other, The train trip down there was rather long but worth it.
