According to the National Autistic Society, 64% of autistic people avoid going to the shops because of sensory overload.
For that reason from Saturday 26 August all of our stores will keep their music off for the first hour of opening. Where possible, our stores will also dim lights.
This will continue every Saturday from the launch date to make shopping at Nugent Orpington more autism-friendly.
We're here to help everyone enjoy their experience.
