No Music

Have you ever noticed that they don’t play music at Target? I didn’t really think about it before until TJ pointed it out to me. We just have a smaller Target in our town, and it’s not usually that crazy busy. When you go into the back right corner, there are not usually that many people back there if any, and that is when you can really notice that there is no music. Because you can’t hear anything. I mean nothing. It is so still and quiet that you could hear a pin drop. Kinda weird really.

I wonder what the Target workers think about this?

I don’t know of many other stores that don’t play music. I thought there was a psychological thing about the music that stores played. Like certain kinds of music entertain the brain and somehow encourage you to buy more, or make you feel more comfortable so that you don’t feel bad about spending money or buying stuff. I obviously don’t know for sure what I’m talking about because I’m no psychologist. :) But I thought there was something to that. Isn’t there?

Well maybe Target has some other plan....I’m not sure what that would be but they probably have their reasons.

I just couldn’t imagine working somewhere that they don’t have music to fill in some of those moments of silence. I mean when I was working at OfficeMax sometimes it got kinda old listening to the same music over and over again, but atleast it was something to fill in the dead space when no one was around.

Hmmm...I've never noticed at our Target. I'll have to listen next time I go there. I don't think Faraway has music, at least I don't remember hearing it. I'll have to check it out tomorrow when I do my grocery shopping.
