Following on from the success of last year’s Autism Hour, Sainsbury’s are proud to be supporting the National Autistic Society (NAS) Autism Awareness week (6th-13th October 2018)
They want all customers to feel comfortable to shop in their stores.
Did you know 64% of people with autism avoid shops because the noise, bright lights, smells and crowds can be daunting.
Sainsbury’s stores will be holding 3 Autism Hours across the week when they will reduce noise and help colleagues understand autism a bit more.
Autism Hours will be:
- Monday 8th October 9 am -10 am
- Wednesday 10th October 4 pm -5 pm and
- Friday 12th October 7 pm-8 pm
The above times will give Sainsbury’s customers a time to choose that works best for them.
We thank Sandra and Marg -PR Ambassadors at Sainsbury’s Telford Forge store for providing us with this information to share with you.
