Hush, Hush, Sweet Shoppers

(Photo by MTaylor848)
You can hardly hear yourself stink within box-store bathrooms these days.  That’s because music is often blasting through speakers just above your weary head.

One British store has therefore decided to help combat sensory overload.  A “quiet hour” will be declared on May 7th at 8 a.m.

How quiet?  The market will operate “sans music, TV displays, announcements, escalators and other loud noises.”  Shoppers who literally find themselves lost will be handed an old-fashioned map of the aisles.

If the idea catches on, other places might follow suit.  Even libraries might once again become quiet zones rather than video arcades.
