“It’s vital that members of our community, including key workers and the elderly, have access to essential goods at this difficult time. Therefore, the centre will stay open for as long as possible to support our community, in-line with Government guidelines, to provide essential goods and services.”

Marks & Spencer has dedicated the first hour of their opening times on Mondays and Thursdays to its vulnerable customers, while Tuesday and Friday mornings are open to key workers. Poundland is also accepting food donations in store, to be distributed within the wider community.

John added, “We would also like to remind our shoppers of our foodbank, located outside Marks & Spencer in the centre. Now more than ever it is essential we are thinking of the vulnerable members of our society, who would greatly benefit from these donations.”

Shoppers are encouraged to visit and check the centre’s social media channels for updates on opening times.
