Why does the store play music from my playlist?

2 months ago

I signed up for Apple Music several months ago. Lately when I spend some time at Lowes, I hear the exact songs that are on my playlist.

It seems like more than a coincidence. Do the store systems subscribe to a service that detects my phone in the store and match up the music? (To keep me in the store longer? As if that’s not going to happen anyway.)

Some of the songs are pretty old. Most were hits though. Could be an demographics algorithm.

It doesn’t really bother me. I have not been able to find any info on the web about it. Does anyone here know what could be going on?

I don’t shop enough to know if this happens in other stores.
