Darren Winter, Centre Director at Junction 32 said: “The entire team here at Junction 32 is looking forward to welcoming our brand partners and guests back.

"The health and safety of everyone who visits our centre is our number one priority, as it has been throughout this crisis, and we continue to follow the Government’s guidelines.

“Our teams are incredibly experienced in keeping the centre safe and clean. A huge thank you to our team for all their hard work in preparing for this moment, they are now very well practiced in managing the re-opening of non-essential retail. "

The centre has implemented new opening hours of 10am to 8pm Monday to Friday, 10amto 6pm Saturday and 11am to 5pm on Sunday, though some individual shops may have their own hours.

One way systems, enhanced cleaning and limited visitor numbers will be used to help keep the centre safe.
