Starbucks will open its first sign language store in the United States this year
Internationally famous coffee chain Starbucks will open a branch in Washington D.C. the capital of the United States later this year. What makes this one special? Every worker here will be proficient in American Sign Language.
The coffee house will be close to Gallaudet University, which is the world's only liberal arts institution of higher learning for the deaf.
Starbucks says at least 20 deaf and hard-of-hearing people will be hired for the store. All workers who have hearing will be required to become fluent in sign language.
The coffee shop will also feature art by deaf and artists. It will also hold events for the local deaf community.
The signing store will be the first of its kind in the United States. The store will open in October this year.
