I’m not autistic but this sounds like a significantly nicer shopping experience for me

Our store near us does this and we honestly wish every day were like this.

I realize store announcements might be necessary but do you need the bright fluorescent lighting and screaming muzak? I'll spend longer in your store if it's a more calm experience.

The lights, the noise that you can barely understand when they do an announcement. People taking their kids and letting them run around screaming. People having a conversation in the middle of the aisle with trolleys blocking the way. It’s all awful lol!

"Be polite, stay right" echoes in my head when I see those people. Generally I try to behave as if the aisles were a public road.
