A POPULAR retail centre has unveiled plans to keep people safe after it reopens.

Intu Eldon Square and intu Metrocentre has outlined how it will safely support the gradual reopening of non-essential retail stores at the centre in line with Government guidelines.

It includes placing limits on the number of people and cars allowed into the centre at a time, with some parking bays closed, and there will be a raft of other measures including one-way systems, floor stickers and staff training to ensure visitors stay socially distanced.

Enhanced hygiene regimes that were introduced at the start of the outbreak will continue, with more deep cleaning of key areas and touch points like escalators, toilets and keypads. Hand sanitation stands will also remain at entrances and other locations throughout the centre for visitors to use during their visit.

Eldon Square and Metrocentre staff will be given personal protective equipment (PPE) to keep them safe.

The plan is being fully communicated to intu Eldon Square and intu Metrocentre’s brand customers with queuing zones in the malls to ensure social distancing can be maintained inside stores.
