Coles introduces Low-Sensory Quiet Hour
Thank you! My little sensory legend has reduced me to tears in a Supermarket more times than I can count. I genuinely appreciate the effort and I hope slowly it might filter through to the daily running of the whole store.
Wow, what a fantastic idea! Also good for some of the more elderly customers, also I reckon my hubby would like it too.
Well done, Coles.
Great incentive, and I hope it will be extended. The loud noise in all supermarkets is very disturbing, and I don't know why we must have it at all (except of course for important announcements).

I think it’s amazing! Trips to the store now with my 7-year son on the autism spectrum will be much more easy for him with less sensory stuff going on.
It worksfor us in the Toowoomba stores - more stores should take it on.
Gourmet in Gundy was a real delight!
Yes, one of my favourite yearly events
Beautiful day for Gourmet Gundy.
Well done Organisation. A great day.
Was such a great afternoon.
A Fantastic Family Day!
