Coles Supermarkets introduce “Quiet Hour”

Coles Supermarkets introduces Quiet Hour initiative

Coles Newtown is the first supermarket in Tasmania to participate in the new Quiet Hour initiative, offering a more sensory-friendly shopping experience. Every Tuesday between 10:30am and 11:30am, lights will be dimmed, the radio and intercom will be silent, trolley collections suspended, and register beeps lowered to minimum volume.

We congratulate Coles for their efforts to provide a low-stress environment for shoppers with sensory difficulties, and hope to see more Tasmanian stores embracing Quiet Hour soon.
