Amen to that! I shop at Hannaford's and the music level (and screechy
teenage voices on the PA) make shopping very unpleasant sometimes. I was
once in the Crate & Barrel at Burlington Mall and the music (smooth jazz)
was deafening. It was so bad I wrote a letter complaining to the
company...for which....they added me to their mail-order catalog list! :) It
was so loud the cashier and I were nearly reduced to hand signals when I was
checking out. I can't imagine working there.

-When did music in stores become foreground instead of background?  I
remember that Muzak said that if you notice the -music when entering a
store, it was too loud.  The music was meant to be calming and friendly, and
not noticed.

-Now it seems it's party time at the supermarket and restaurants where the
music (usually some annoying mix of too-poppy -or too-loud rock) is so loud
it's distracting.
