    Why silent isn’t always best


    I am probably one of the few people who really doesn’t enjoy the shopping experience. Regardless of whether it is food shopping or clothes shopping nothing feels me full of dread as much as the thought of having to spend hours walking around town trying on items and being incredibly indecisive about my choices. However, what I do enjoy is the music that plays in the stores. It really helps make what is usually a really stressful experience for me a much more pleasant one. There really is nothing worse than standing in a changing room trying to debate whether you should or should buy another little black dress whilst standing there in complete silence. It is definitely better to spend your changing room time bopping around to a bit of music.

    ·    Providing a space for privacy – when you play music in your store you unknowingly add to the privacy of your customers. In a silent store you will often find people are uncomfortable chatting away to their friends and family for fear of being heard and as is typically British we become even more reserved. However, in comparison, when music is played you will see people relax into their surroundings and will chat away with their friends and this makes for an overall more pleasurable shopping experience.

    ·        Speed up or slow down – there have been studies undertaken into the effect of the pace of music on how customers move around the store. It is thought that slower paced music can influence shoppers to browse the aisles at a slower speed where as more up-tempo music playing tends to make people move quicker through the store.
