This is interesting. Maybe there's hope.
The question is: if the fast music doesn't help sales, why
do they play it? To please the employees?
If so, my guess would be that the employees are the young
noise-addicted types who need the added audio stimulus.
Studies of this nature need to be controlled for age of the
clientele. The fast-music treatment might yield more dollars
when the clientele is younger.
