Sensory Friendly Shopping at Target Sponsored by Bittersweet

Holiday shopping can be stressful for anyone, but especially for those with sensory challenges. Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders are often sensitive to bright lights, loud music, and crowds. This year, Bittersweet and the Toledo SE Target in Rossford have teamed up to offer a sensory friendly shopping opportunity for individuals with autism and their families. 

On Thursday, December 7, Target in Rossford will be opening an hour early to provide a sensory friendly shopping experience for individuals with autism. From 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. the lights will be dimmed, the music turned off, and foot traffic limited. 

Individuals with autism and their families are welcome to attend this sensory friendly event on December 7 from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. at the Toledo SE Target in Rossford.
