You can file an ADA complaint with US Dept. of Justice.ility

They investigate and may fine this business and require them to meet ADA requirements for accessibility.They cannot deny you access since this is a public business.

File with Florida Lottery Commission as well they may take away their right to sell for such a violation.

I am so sorry that you were treated this way.You have rights here and should file a complaint with both the feds and Florida Lottery Commission.They may have to pay fines here and loose their rights to sell lottery tickets.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.I wish you the best here and have a happy thanksgiving.
