Success of Friendly Hour at Sainsbury’s Telford Forge Retail Park

For more than 12 months SDN have been alerting you to Friendly Hour taking place at Sainsbury’s at Telford Forge Retail Park, Colliers Way, Telford TF3 4AG on the first Monday of each month.

Sandra and Marg PR Ambassador at Sainsbury’s Telford Forge Retail Park introduced Friendly Hour at their store in 201. This idea has been backed by their Manager, and as a result of its success, as from Monday 4th February 2019, Friendly Hour will take place every Monday from 09.30-10.30 am.

Earlier this month SDN shared the good news that Sainsbury’s, Whitchurch store had informed us they were starting a Quiet Hour, on Tuesday 8th January 2019 10.00-11.00 am. This will take place at the same time each Tuesday. 

The idea of both Quiet Hour and Friendly Hour anyone who would appreciate a quieter, a more relaxed shopping environment, to shop to do so. While lights cannot be dimmed, there will be no tannoy announcements and no music. It will be quieter so No roll cages on shop floor to cause noise.

Shropshire Disability Network are very pleased that these local stores have decided to provide these quieter and less stressful times for people to shop. We thank Ann, Marg and Sandra, PR Ambassadors at the stores and their Managers for taking this initiative and we hope more branches will follow from their example.

Note, these opportunities are unique to both stores and do not take place across all Sainsbury’s stores.
