Di Rodgers, centre manager at Lakeside Village said: “We are pleased to confirm that Lakeside Village will be reopening at 10am on Monday 15 June 2020.
“Initially, this will be a partial opening of some stores and the centre will operate reduced opening hours of 10am-5pm each day and 10.30am-4.30pm on Sundays so that we can once again offer an enjoyable and safe shopping experience for all. “Throughout the reopening process the safety of our staff and customers continues to be our absolute priority and, in partnership with all our stores, we are implementing a number of additional measures to help. “These include clearly marked walkways and queueing systems to ensure social distancing is maintained as well as limits, when necessary, to the number of people allowed in each store at any one time. Only one of our cash machines will be operational at a time and, for the time being, our children’s play areas will also remain closed. “In addition, our toilet areas will see alternate hand basins, urinals and toilet cubicles closed and there are now a number of dedicated hand sanitisation points around the centre. Following a deep clean, increased cleaning will now take place across the whole site, particularly in areas that are regularly touched by our employees and visitors. “On behalf of everyone here at Lakeside Village, their families and the wider community we want to express our utmost admiration for all the NHS and key workers who have played such a large part in managing the current crisis and ultimately enabling us to re-open safely. “We are so looking forward to welcoming our customers back to the centre, we have missed you all. Certain stores will remain closed for a little while longer so we would advise anyone planning to visit the centre to check www.lakeside-village.co.uk for all the latest information.”
