Following the Government’s announcement to re-open non-essential stores from Monday 12th April the team at Grand Arcade have been working hard to get the centre ready to welcome shoppers back safely.
Shoppers will be able to access the centre via the main entrance on Standishgate, Crompton Street Car Park and The Lanes entrance between Warriors World and The Body Shop. There will be hand sanitiser stations at all entrances to use when entering the centre. All other entrances via Debenhams and Poundland will remain closed until further notice.
Government guidelines state that wearing an appropriate face covering by the general public and all 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 an people living with a disability.
The management team would appreciate shoppers 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, only using card payments and contactless where possible.
The one-way system around the centre remains in place asking everyone to keep left, this allows shoppers to move around while easily observing social distancing guidance. Members of the public are asked to follow the directional poster guides and floor markers on display around the centre.
The escalators, lifts and stairs will be in use, please familiarise yourself with the guidance displayed before use. The public toilets and Customer Service Desk are open. There will be no seating areas and limited children’s ride available. Both Crompton Street and Millgate car park are open to use.
The Grand Arcade team wish to thank the public for their ongoing support.
