Sobey's in NS stores have rolled out Sensory Friendly Shopping ! ❤️

Erin Blog - Sobeys

Love this idea so much!

All Sobeys stores in Nova Scotia have teamed up with Autism Nova Scotia and introduced Sensory Friendly Shopping Time!

So this started this past Sunday, and will happen Bi-Weekly at this specific store from 6 pm – 7 pm!

In order for the store to be Sensory Friendly, here’s what they’ll do:

  • Reduce lighting in the star
  • No PSA or scanner noises
  • No card collection
  • Duty manager at the front of the store to support
  • Lower department noises.

Good on ‘ya Sobeys! Love to see this initiative!
