Liverpool ONE reveals 15th June reopening plans
Grosvenor Europe’s Liverpool ONE shopping centre has laid out some of the safety measures it will be taking, following the government’s announcement allowing all non-essential stores to reopen from 15 June.
Visitors will be advised to keep to the left at all times and, on the upper level of South John Street, a one-way walk-way will be in place. Additional hand sanitiser stations will be positioned across the estate and all staff will have face masks and gloves.
Furthermore, the toilet facilities will be open with no charge and will have additional cleaning measures in place.
Individual retailers are likely to restrict the numbers allowed in stores at any one time, and designated queuing areas will be in place to accommodate shoppers, who will also be expected to observe the two-metre social distancing rule.
Alison Clegg, director of asset management at Grosvenor Europe, commented: “The team has worked hard in consultation with our retailers to prepare a safe and welcoming environment, with many measures in place to ensure everyone visiting and working at Liverpool ONE are protected under the national guidelines.
“We are now looking forward to welcoming back our visitors to Liverpool ONE in the newly adapted scheme. Our primary focus is for visitors to safely enjoy the outdoor spaces and once again start supporting the local economy in this period of recovery.”
Revised opening hours will also be in place from Monday – Saturday, allowing staff to avoid peak travel times. Stores will continue to open as normal on a Sunday between 11am and 5pm.
