How are stores affected by the Government’s decision to close retail centres?

We understand that this is a difficult time, and want to reassure you that the health and safety of our customers, colleagues and communities is our top priority.

Following government guidance, all non-essential stores are now temporarily closed until further notice.

In line with this advice, the following stores remain open:

The policies and opening times of individual stores will vary - so we always recommend that our customers check directly with retailers prior to setting off.
