Brewery Square's reopening alongside many other retailers - but they're taking extra care to make sure people stay safe.

Floor stickers encouraging social distancing, sanitising stations and regular cleaning will take place across the whole site.

They'll also be keeping the water fountains off until next year.

Brewery Square Fountains will remain off for the remainder of the year to avoid children mixing in too close quarters.

The government's given the go-ahead for many shops to reopen again from June 15th.

Retailers in Brewery Square say they've got customers and staff wellbeing at the front of their minds as they gradually reopen in the coming weeks. 

They're also making sure staff and contractors have access to PPE equipment.


Charlotte Spracklen, centre manager at Brewery Square, said: 

"Our highest priority is ensuring that our visitors feel safe when they shop with us and increasing health and safety measures is key to achieving this. 

"We also know how difficult this period has been for our retailers and restaurants and want to support them as much as possible to get their businesses back up and running again in a safe and sensible way. 

"We want people to feel they can still have the shopping experience they know and love at Brewery Square, with our new COVID safety measures in place."

Some essential stores are already open, including:

  • Moorland Express
  • Touts Pharmacy
  • Atrium Health Centre

Others are offering a home delivery service:

  • Belle Modelle
  • Copper Street Brewery
  • Vinyl Van
  • The Highbrow Clinic and Aesthetics

Re-opening dates for retailers at Brewery Square are being led by Government advice and may be subject to change.

Restaurants are currently working to a different Government timetable, and more information about their re-opening plans will be provided in due course.
