Related topics: Economic growth / Partner organisations

Shrewsbury’s Darwin, Pride Hill and Riverside shopping centres are to remain open during the current lockdown, but only a small number of stores will be open, and two cafes will be open for takeaway only.

As with previous lockdowns, the Pride Hill Centre is available for access to Vision Express for appointments and emergencies only – via the main entrance on Pride Hill. No public access is available to the lower levels of the Pride Hill Centre and through to the Riverside Centre.

Security staff are available on the front entrances of the centres to assist members of the public with any queries and to advise people about the wearing face coverings in the centres.

Kevin Lockwood, Shrewsbury shopping centres manager, said:

“Shrewsbury’s shopping centres are and will remain open for a small number of stores but we ask that our customers follow the latest Government guidance and only make essential visits at this time.
