On the morning of Sunday 6th November, Toys “R” Us are inviting all families affected by autism and additional needs the opportunity to drop into their store in the shopping centre for an hour of browsing and discovering Christmas gift ideas.
To ensure a successful and enjoyable event is achieved in every store, lights will be slightly dimmed and fluorescent lighting reduced where possible. Music and Tannoy announcements will be switched off during the event, and autism friendly signage will be utilised to offer a more calming influence. There will also be a quiet zone available should the need arise.
The Stores will open for 1 hour prior to official store opening times. Due to Sunday Trading legislation, Toys “R” Us stores in England, Northern Ireland and Wales are unable to perform any sales transactions, process any Direct purchases or complete any returns until the official store opening time at 11am (England & Wales) or 1pm (Northern Ireland).
This may cause concerns to some families whose children may struggle with the patience of waiting between choosing their items and being able to pay for them due to Sunday Trading laws. Any parents, who wish to return later that morning to pay for shopping, will be offered this opportunity.
