I like the idea, and I would shop in these hours if I could. Especially the part about silencing the barcode scanners, it's really nice.Essentially, a sensory-friendly shopping environment reduces any unnecessary lights and sounds that could negatively affect customers, while still maintaining a safe shopping environment. According to Sobeys spokeswoman Florence Chapman, this includes dimming half the lights, as well as reducing or muting all noise coming from barcode scanners, music, P.A. announcements, deli machines and shopping cart collection.
