MEADOWHALL remains open today (Tuesday) — but shoppers are being told to contact individual stores for information on closures.
Urban Outfitters announced yesterday it was closing as a precaution until further notice, and Apple said it would close all of its stores until March 27.
In a statement this morning, Meadowhall said: “We understand that this is a difficult time, and want to reassure you that the wellbeing of our teams, retailers and customers is our priority.
“In line with Government guidance, our centre remains open. The evolving nature of the situation makes some disruption inevitable and we apologise if this causes inconvenience.
“To reassure visitors, we have enhanced our already stringent cleaning protocols and postponed our events schedule.
“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.
“Our retailers are working hard to help our local community, and we ask that our visitors shop sensitively and respectfully.
“Our site teams are available to help visitors with any questions they may have.”
