Target to hold quiet shopping hours for people with autism

Expect More… and even more.

In a progressive move, a Target in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, is offering quiet shopping hours for people with autism. 

During the holidays, stores like Target can get a bit loud and extremely congested. For someone with autism, this experience can be frightening and stressful.

On Saturday from 6am to 8am ET, residents of Lancaster will be able to shop at Target without a hassle. 

The event will feature dimmed lights, fewer staff members on the clock, no music and ads, and less people shopping. Parents are also in for a treat, receiving free Starbucks upon arrival, according to the Mighty.

This motion is currently only taking place at this specific Target, and was suggested by the employees at the location.
