Here's our quick guide to help you plan your next visit.
We are now open and we can’t wait to welcome you back.
We know it’s going to take some getting used to, and the way we all shop is going to feel different for a while.
Our priority is yours and our colleagues’ health and we have introduced a range of measures to keep us all safe. These include:
• A one-way system in the centre. Entry into centre will be using Bus Station, Waitrose, Fenwick or Food Court entrances only. All remaining entrances will be for exit use only. Signage is in place throughout to help guide your journey while you shop.
• Clear signs throughout the centre reminding everyone of the need to social distance, and to avoid shopping in large groups.
• Hand sanitiser stations around the centre.
• Enhanced cleaning procedures throughout the centre.
• Face coverings are compulsory throughout the centre, including in all our stores
We’re restricting how many people can enter the centre and individual stores at any one time. This way, we can ensure everyone in the centre is able to social distance easily.
Please bear with us, as it might take a little longer than normal to get what you want when you visit.
Below are a range of answers to the most frequently asked questions to help plan your next visit:
Will there be queues?
There are no queues to enter the centre unless our capacity is reached. There will be queues for some stores. To avoid these we suggest you visit weekdays to avoid busy periods.
Will the toilets be open?
Yes – the toilets and baby changing facilities are open (excluding Centre Court) although we have introduced measures to encourage social distancing.
Which stores are open?
If you are planning to visit a particular store, please visit their page here for the latest information.
Can I use the lift?
Our lifts are available for use but social distancing is required at all time, and we are recommending one person or household per lift. Please only enter a vacant lift when it becomes available. This may mean delays to your journey through the centre during times of high use.
Are the car parks open?
All car parks are currently open. Parking remains free of charge. For further information please visit here. Is the Shopmobility open?
Shopmobility services have reopened on a pre-booked, appointment only basis. For details and contact information please click here.
Do I have to wear a face mask/covering?
In line with the latest guidance from the Government, face coverings are compulsory throughout the centre, including in all our stores, unless you have a legitimate reason not to wear one such as a disability. For more information on who is exempt please visit the Government’s website.
We know that those who are exempt may feel more comfortable showing something that says they do not have to wear a face covering. The Government has produced some materials that may help here.
Are store changing rooms open to try on items?
Our retailers will have their own policies when it comes to changing rooms and return periods, so if you're interested in visiting a specific store, we'd recommend getting in touch with them direct.
