Morrisons 'quiet hour' for autistic shopping introduced

Supermarket chain Morrisons has introduced a weekly "Quieter hour" for autistic shoppers who struggle with music and noise. The National Autistic Society says it is a "Step in the right direction" for those who find shopping a struggle. Toy shop The Entertainer holds "Quiet hours" during the first hour of opening every Saturday, when staff turn off in-store music in the company's 145 UK stores to "Create a more welcoming environment for children with autism".

Angela Gray, Morrisons community champion at Woking, who has an autistic child herself said she'd found the changes made a "Real difference".
