Home decor and furniture retailer Yogibo is setting a precedent for other retailers as the first certified sensory inclusive retail chain in collaboration with KultureCity. As Yogibo's furniture is known for its soothing benefits, the stores are offering sensory bags to provide a positive shopping experience for the autism and sensory community. As well as outfitting its stores with seating areas featuring soothing seating areas, Yogibo is committed to training staff to provide supportive experiences.
Since stores can be places that are busy and overwhelming, especially during the holiday season, this initiative helps to offer greater support for those with sensory processing disorders and their families.
As of March 2020, every US Yogibo store is set to be certified as sensory inclusive.
