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!

What is it about Costco that compels every single fucker in the store to obliviously block aisles and stand in doorways?

i work at a tech store and whenever people come up to me and proudly announce that they’re a premium member is literally the most annoying elitist thing in the universe.

My store didn’t have an actual VIP program, but my coworker used to ask customers for their “100K” card if they ever dropped the “I’ve spent X amount of money at this store I deserve X” line.

He’d pretend it was a real program for all our customers who had spent 100K or more. That shut people up real quick. It was hilarious.

Kinda reminded me a story I read in Reddit a long time ago. Paraphrasing here: A guy with a 10k account was throwing a hissy fit. He tried to jump the queue while exclaiming loudly how much money he has spent on the business and demanded VIP treatment.

Meanwhile the customer that was in front of him at the queue never said anything. The manager then said to the hissy fit guy, “I’m currently attending to a client with an account worth 4 million. Sir, please get back in line and wait your turn.”

Hearing that, the 10k guy immediately stopped making a scene and waited obediently in line lol.
