UK's Sainsbury’s supermarket launches slow shopping hour for elderly, people with disabilities
Sainsbury’s supermarket in London has come up with an idea to help elderly customers and people with disabilities.
The supermarket will slow down the pace for two hours every Tuesday to enable them to get a better shopping experience.
A staff will be dedicated to cater to them.
Chairs will be arranged in the aisle for sitting in case shoppers feel tired. Help-desks will be set up to provide food samples to assist in decision-making.
Another supermarket chain in the UK have started a quiet hour for shoppers with autism.
