Description

We've introduced a 'Quieter Hour' in all Morrisons stores - designed help customers who currently struggle with music and the other noise associated with supermarket shopping.

During Quieter Hours, our stores will:

  • Dim the lights
  • Turn music and radio off
  • Avoid making tannoy announcements
  • Reduce movement of trolleys and baskets
  • Turn checkout beeps and other electrical noises down
  • Place a poster outside to tell customers it’s Quieter Hour
