It may surprise some people that Lidl, the famous cost-cutting chain of supermarkets, is free of piped music, but it should not.
Piped music is an unnecessary extra expense for a chain that concentrates on low prices.
Lidl stores, if not luxurious, are therefore pleasant to shop in – far more so than muzac-polluted places such as Somerfield or Asda. Lidl staff, being free from the stress of unwanted music being forced on them, are actually more likely to be relaxed and helpful.
