Our friends over at the Bridges have just confirmed that they will remain open throughout lockdown to ensure customers are able to access essential supplies.


To help keep you safe and up-to-date with everything that is going on, we’ve put together a complete guide to which stores are remaining open so shoppers can stock up on items such as medicines, food and utilise banking services.


Essential retailers still open to shoppers: 

Bargain Buys




Caffe Nero (Takeaway Only)


DSS Medical






Greggs Cafe (Takeaway Only)




Holland and Barrett






Krispy Kreme (Takeaway Only)


News and Booze


Nudo – (Takeaway only & pre order available)






Starbucks (Takeaway Only)






Vision Express (by appointment only) 


Waterstones (Click & Collect)


A number of non-essential retailers are offering click and collect but the centre is advising people to check with individual stores to see if they are offering this service.

Although the Bridges is operating its normal opening hours, Centre Director, Karen Eve, advises shoppers to check opening times with individual retailers before visiting as some hours may be reduced.

“I would reassure everyone, however, that safety remains our priority at the Bridges,” she said.

“We have put a full range of measures in place to make each visitor’s shopping experience as secure and enjoyable as possible and I would like to thank all our customers for continuing to adhere to social distancing.”                               

The Bridges is open from 9am to 5.30pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday; from 9am to 8pm on Thursday and from 11am to 5pm on Sunday.

The centre’s multi-storey car park is closed but the rooftop car park and toilets remain open.
