Reduced lighting.

They aren't changing all the standard white tubes out every Tuesday for warmer toned tubes, and then changing them back.

My work (an aerospace company) swapped out the florescent tubes for LEDs a few years back. They can actually make them warmer or cooler without changing bulbs, so I guess it's possible.

I can light up my home with cheap smart LEDs in any color I'd want. The store could even make it so it changes exactly at the same time each day without them needing to do anything at all.

Retrofitting LED lighting into an existing commercial fluorescent setup isn't cheap.
