You're being too lenient. Why don't we just shut the whole hazardous place down so there is no danger of anyone ever again going facedown on that dangerous tile surface .

Persnicketygal, is the one step higher than the others? (That was what I had thought, but after re-reading, I'm not sure.)

I think it was, Carlingtonian, but I can't recall. I remember on the way out looking at the step I tripped on to guesstimate how high it was.

(And legal action is not what I'm seeking here. Just a sign -- something visible that would command attention. A $2 job at the most. There's one for customers leaving, as I wrote, so what's so wrong with that? The store manager just went back to his business -- talking to someone I believe was a regional manager -- without agreeing with me that another sign is needed, so I have no confidence that he'd take that very simple action.)

I think the solution for the owner is to paint the steps like this
Google Image Result for http://entertainmentdesigner.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Mind-Your-Step.jpg

or maybe just a simple yellow stripe.

The entrance I used was not.
But there was another entrance on the other side of the building, so I'm thinking it had to have been handicapped-accessible (it was a restaurant).
