Re-opening Info

The team Birchwood Shopping Centre wish to thank the public for their ongoing support and understanding over the past few months during lockdown.

Following the Government’s announcement to reopen non-essential stores we have been working hard to make necessary changes throughout the shopping centre to ensure the right balance of measures are in place to protect our staff and customers who visit us. Safety is our number one priority.

Therefore, we would appreciate your continued support in respecting Government’s advice to adhere to social distancing when visiting the centre. This includes standing no closer than 2 metres when completing a transaction or when queuing, using card payments and contactless where possible.

On Monday 15th June more stores will start to reopen, individual store openings and trading times will vary, therefore we advise shoppers to check with individual retailers before travelling to the centre to avoid any disappointment.

We are asking shoppers to follow the directional and helpful signage which will be displayed around the centre. Please follow the guides on the floor and familiarise yourself with the queue markers outside of stores.

There will be hand sanitiser stations at all entrances, please use the sanitiser when entering the centre.

Government guidelines now state wearing an appropriate face covering by the general public and retail staff in shops, supermarkets, shopping centre malls, banks and post offices is now law. Exemptions include children under 11 years of age, people with breathing difficulties and people living with a disability.

The public toilets are now open between 10am and 4pm, there will be no seating areas and limited children’s rides available and for hygiene purposes, we ask you not to eat or drink whilst walking around the premises.

Please be kind to our staff, we are here to help you and ask that you follow any guidance they may be offering.

Thank you, stay safe and stay alert.
