Kingfisher bosses remind people to 'stay safe' as all non-essential shops open

Harry Leach 13th Apr, 2021

KINGFISHER bosses are reminding people to stay safe following an increase in footfall at the shopping centre this week.

The health and safety reminder was issued after non-essential shops reopened on Monday as part of the government’s latest easing of lockdown.

Bosses at the centre say visitor volume will be monitored to make sure there is sufficient open space for social distancing.

This centre has footfall counting technology which will be used to manage the number of guests entering.

The real-time traffic light system, which keeps people updated on how busy the centre is, has been reintroduced on the Kingfisher’s website.

PureGym has also reopened inside but the cinema and other entertainment venues will remain closed until next month at the earliest.

Restaurants and cafes will continue to offer takeaway services.

General manager Ken Williams said: “We are really pleased to welcome our retailers and community back to our centre.

“We urge guests to visit us during our quieter times, which are usually late afternoons.

“Please remember to follow the ‘hands, face, space’ guidance.”

Shoppers should not enter the centre if they are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms.

They should maintain a distance of at least two metres from all members of the public and should wear a face covering unless exempt.
