Following the Government’s update that all non-essential shops are to close, intu Metrocentre has been operating on a partially closed basis. However, following the most recent Government update, more shops within the centre will gradually reopen adhering to social distancing guidelines.

A small number of the team will be on hand to make sure the centre remains clean and safe to visit. Enhanced hygiene regimes that were introduced at the start of the outbreak will continue, with more deep cleaning of key areas and touchpoints like escalators, toilets and keypads.

intu will be placing limits on the number of people and cars allowed into the centre at a time, with some parking bays closed, and there will be a raft of other measures such as one-way systems, floor stickers and staff training to ensure visitors stay socially distanced.

A small number of the team will be on hand to make sure the centre remains a clean and safe place to visit. Centre opening times will vary so please check here -
