After successfully running monthly quiet shopping hours before lockdown we have now decided to increase this to every week. The regular ‘Quiet Shopping Mornings’ aim to create a more peaceful environment for shoppers that struggle with sensory overload.
The new initiative follows our involvement with Purple Tuesday, the UK’s first accessible shopping day, last November. One of the things we learned from the actions we took for Purple Tuesday is that shopping should be an experience that everyone can enjoy and the introduction of our new quiet hour will ensure a much more peaceful environment for customers that react adversely to sensory and sound overload.
Music on the mall and in stores will be turned off and there will be no announcements during the quiet hour.
Quiet Shopping Mornings at Dalton Park will take place between 10am – 12pm every Tuesday.
