Grocery Gateway Accessibility Statement
At Grocery Gateway, building a culture that respects the dignity and differences in others, is the driving force behind our success. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is supported through our actions, decisions, and initiatives. At Grocery Gateway, our mission of serving others includes everyone! This backdrop informs our accessibility initiatives. Grocery Gateway is committed to making its communications accessible to everyone, including people with disabilities. We will make every reasonable effort to conform our website to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level A & AA and comply with applicable accessibility laws.
We have partnered with eSSENTIAL Accessibility to develop and manage our digital accessibility program. Our accessibility program evaluates and audits our digital communications on an ongoing basis and is supported by a diverse team of accessibility professionals, including people with disabilities. We are working to ensure our digital content meets required accessibility standards and goes beyond minimum compliance by making an assistive CX technology application available free of charge through our digital properties, for customers who have trouble typing, gesturing, moving a mouse, or reading.
We want to hear from you if you encounter any accessibility barriers on our digital properties. Please contact our Customer Support at [email protected] or by phone at 1-877-447-8778.
Our commitment to web accessibility is part of the overall Longo’s Accessibility Policy that governs Longo’s stores and offices, ensuring accessibility to both customers and team members. Read the Longo’s Accessibility Policy.
