Saw this in the Guardian and thought it might be of interest:

Asda is introducing a “quiet hour” at a Manchester store to help autistic and disabled shoppers.

The Asda Living store in Cheetham Hill is pioneering a disability-friendly hour for people who feel intimidated or stressed by noise and disturbance.

The store will open an hour early without electronic distractions such as escalators, music and display TVs, and the public address system will not be used for announcements.

Neat idea?
