Since 24 March the centre has remained open for essential retail and committed to deep cleaning of malls, car parks and service areas.

From Monday 15 June non-essential retail reopened at Queensgate under new government guidelines. Additional health and safety measures have been implemented to ensure a safe shopping environment, including enhanced daily cleaning schedules, with a focus on touchpoints throughout the mall, such as handrails and door handles. On entry and exit, hand sanitisers have also been installed with handwashing instructions.

Throughout the mall, two-metre indictors are presented on the floor and visitors are being asked to ‘stay-to-the-left’ and use our new one-way system. Information signs are also present throughout the centre giving advice, such as using escalators and customers lifts.

All Queensgate staff wear facial coverings, and as per government guidance it is mandatory for those over 11 years old and who are able to wear a face mask or face covering in shops to do so. This will apply in Queensgate Shopping Centre and its retailers. Face masks can be purchased from retailers including Boots, Damage Society, Elsa Rose, Style and our PPE vending machine in the bus station.

Queensgate will be open during the following times, however, please note that individual opening times will vary:

Monday to Saturday 10.00am to 5.00pm

Sunday 10.30am to 4.30pm
