As part of our weekly Autism Aware Quiet Evenings we are offering customers a calmer shopping environment and the security of knowing that priority queuing and additional assistance are available if necessary.
We’ve been working with charities, such as Autism Ireland, to ensure that these evenings fit our customer’s needs. From April 2nd, World Autism Day, we will make a number of sensory adjustments in each of our stores:
- Reduced lighting
- No music or announcements
- Lower till scan sounds
We would also like to invite registered Irish autism charities to get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org if they would like to promote their work and raise awareness of autism by speaking with Lidl colleagues and customers in stores nationwide during our Autism Aware Quiet Evenings.
