Was it done by leprechauns?

Yesterday I discovered that my local Starbucks has indeed taken steps to make it accessible - it lowered the pick up counter to an accessible height and added a wider seating area where you can sit in a wheelchair comfortably. 

When Starbucks closed for three hours recently, I wrote a post saying I hoped they would take the opportunity to make their stores more accessible , because I had spoken to them about the access issues and the problems that ensued. Since I did that, I want to follow up with a positive post!

This is an excellent way for businesses to get- and keep-  more customers with disabilities, by addressing their needs in a timely manner. 

But it made me wonder, if it was done during those three hours, if leprechauns were involved....

Love your sense of humor and glad to know there's one more accessible place I can go to now!
