Alongside it’s product offering, Lidl Ireland commits to supporting members of the autism community with its in-store initiatives such as welcoming JAM Card holders on a daily basis and hosting Autism Aware Evenings. The JAM Card allows people with a learning difficulty, autism or communication barrier to tell others they need ‘Just A Minute’ (JAM) discreetly and easily in customer service situations.
Additionally, Autism Aware Evenings take pace every Tuesday between 6-8pm and are designed to be a better shopping experience for customers with autism. On these evenings, stores have numerous sensory adjustments in place including reduced lighting and reduced noise, with till scan sounds lowered, no in-store announcement and no background music. Lidl have also prepared an in-store map and shopping list for children with autism to prepare and organise their shopping trip that can be downloaded here.
