Morrisons is introducing more Quieter Hours for customers who shop in-store from this week. Quieter Hours were first introduced two years ago after families affected by autism shared their difficulties in shopping in noisy and busy supermarkets. The initiative currently operates every Saturday between 9am-10am but Morrisons is to extend this shopping experience.
Shopping for groceries can often be stressful and busy with customers packed into stores with trolleys.
Since the coronavirus pandemic, less shoppers are allowed in-store at any one time but there still can be loud noises and movement.
During Quieter Hours, customers can experience a stress free grocery shop.
This includes dim lights, no music or radio playing, no tannoy announcements and reducing the movement of trolleys and baskets.

There will also be quieter electrical noises like checkout beeps and there will be a poster outside to tell customers it’s Quieter Hour.
Morrisons is now also introducing Quieter Hours on Sundays for the first hour of shopping.
