LANCASTER, Pa. — Holiday shopping is about to get a little less stressful at a Target store in the northeast.

Target in Lancaster, Pennsylvania is offering quiet shopping hours for parents of children on the autism spectrum.

This Saturday from 6 to 8 a.m., the store will turn off the music, dim the lights, and reduce its staff, all to make it a little easier for parents and kids with autism.

Children and adults with autism often struggle with sensory stimulus overload. While this is the only Target store to implement the quiet shopping, we can all agree a little quiet time in shopping could probably benefit everyone.
