"Our centre has and always will be at the heart of the Derbyshire community, so were here for locals during these difficult times and will continue to serve shoppers safely over the coming weeks."
Adam Tamsett, general manager at the Derby Centre
Over 45 retailers remain open at the Derby Centre for essential shopping, click and collect services and takeaways throughout November.
The shopping destination remains open during lockdown, safely providing essential retail services to Derbyshire locals, with free parking available all day. Supermarkets such as Sainsbury’s, Iceland and M&S Foodhall all remain open, as well as pharmacies including Superdrug and Boots.
Free parking is in place throughout the month, with level 4 of the Centre car park, Basement and Bradshaw Way car parks all open for customers to use. To make the weekly food shop as fuss-free as possible, M&S is giving visitors the option to pre book an in-store shopping slot, so people can choose a time to suit them and avoid any queues.
In addition, more than 15 brands including Next, The Entertainer, Zara and Lush are offering free click and collect services for customers, in line with government guidance, allowing locals to pick up online purchases while in centre shopping for their groceries and other essential items.
A number of much-loved restaurants, cafes and eateries are also providing a variety of takeaway options. Visitors can still get their hands on a limited edition Terry’s Chocolate Orange hot chocolate from Costa Coffee, a hand-crafted burger from Five Guys, or even a delicious dinner from Zizzi or Wagamama, available for either collection or home delivery via Deliveroo.
There are a number of safety measures in place across the centre, with staff on standby to help manage footfall, the requirement to wear face coverings throughout, enhanced cleaning regimes across all visitor touch points, as well as hand sanitising stations.
Adam Tamsett, general manager at the Derby Centre, commented: “We’re pleased that we’re still able to remain open for essential retailers to help provide important services to the Derbyshire community, as well as see the addition of click and collect services and takeaway offerings, to help locals make more of their essential trips to the centre.
“Our centre has and always will be at the heart of the Derbyshire community, so we’re here for locals during these difficult times and will continue to serve shoppers safely over the coming weeks.”
