Shopping without annoying mall muzak and cell phones going off every five seconds and people shouting over sales?
We've dreamed about it, but we never actually thought it could happen!
UK department store Selfridges has announced plans for a silent shopping space called "No Noise," inspired by an idea founder Harry Gordon Selfridge had in 1909.
The space, which will be located in the store's Ultralounge, will require shoppers to part with their shoes and cell phones, and will include meditation stations and headspace pods.
Now that's what we call retail therapy! Literally!
The silent area will also harbor a Quiet Shop, which will sell de-branded clothing in addition to curated collections from lines like Acne, Maison Martin Margiela, and Jil Sander.
We love it!
We just wish we didn't have to go all the way to London to experience it.
