We are introducing a ‘quiet hour’ each Sunday morning to make the experience of visiting easier for those with sensory issues and conditions such as autism.
From 10 to 11am, there will be no background music in the main concourse of Glasgow Fort and a number of stores will also shut off their sound systems for the hour.
Phil Goodman, Centre Manager at Glasgow Fort, said:
“We want Glasgow Fort to be as welcoming as possible and we understand background noise can be difficult for those with sensory issues and conditions such as autism to deal with. Our weekly quiet hour will allow people with these conditions, and their friends and families, to enjoy time shopping and dining with us without background noise.”
Most of our stores will observe the quiet hour including:
Starbucks (please note this store is often noisy with customers)
The Perfume Shop
Clarks (If you would like a quiet area for you or your child's feet to be measured, just ask a staff member who will be happy to oblige)
Fuel Juice Bar (please note there is noise which comes from their blenders)
Mamas & Papas
