I don’t know if it’s just me, or if I’m getting older or what but the past few years I’ve had no tolerance for loud music in stores. If I walk into a store and the music is so loud that I can’t think, I walk right out without buying anything. Maybe that’s the intended effect. Maybe I’m not the customer they want to sell to. Maybe they want to sell to the really young kids who can handle loud decibel levels and feel cool instead of irate.
But hold up. Where do these kids get their money from? Most of them are getting it from mom and dad and if they are shopping with their parents, wouldn’t it be in the stores’ best interests to want to keep the parents in the store?
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not against loud music period – I just think there’s a time and place. I don’t want to feel like I’m at the club when I’m trying to shop and do math in my head and figure out if a top will work with the bottoms and cardigans and shoes I have in my existing wardrobe. There’s too much thinking to do and too much noise to think. Maybe this says something about the way I shop but I hope that I’m not the only one out there that gets annoyed by really loud music in stores. What do you think? Does it annoy you or am I just an old lady?
