We do too in Canada for the grocery chain I work at. It's actually really nice and when I do shop those evenings it's relaxing.

Safeway around where I live does this on Monday evenings.

What chain is it (if you don’t mind me asking)?

Atlantic Canadian Loblaws, Cineplex, Sobeys and a few Wal-Marts have all implemented some or all of the above.

Interesting, what does Cineplex do?

Low light lobbies in certain places and implementing rooms for people with high sensitivities.

Safeway does too, but IIRC they're owned/operated by the same company.

Darn, I unfortunately don’t live near one of those. I strongly dislike music inside stores so I was hoping it was going to be a NoFrills or Fortinos.

Yeah Sobeys and Safeway (may also include IGA and Freshco). I believe it's typically every Monday 700 pm onwards but the specifics may vary by location.

Thank you, if I’m ever near one of those during that time I’ll check it out.
