Yate Shopping Centre Shops Remaining Open During Lockdown

Yate Shopping Centre

Yate’s shopkeepers are facing 2021 in much the same way that they endured 2020 with severe restrictions on their ability to trade effectively.

However, many are adapting their businesses to offer either take-away or click & collect services.

In all 40 businesses are able to continue to trade in one way or other within the Government’s lockdown guidelines and these businesses have been confirmed with South Gloucestershire Council as qualified to open.

Andrew Lowrey, Yate Shopping Centre Manager: “It’s not such a Happy New Year as we would have liked but the Chancellor’s announcement this morning of grants to help all retail, leisure and hospitality firms gives some comfort but the businesses were really hoping that the virus had abated enough after the Christmas break to get back to full trading.

“However, reality prevails and where they can businesses are looking at offering Yate shoppers services within the guidelines. The key message is that don’t come to the Centre unless you really have to and, if you do, please remember the basic social distancing and precautionary measures to help limit the spread of the virus.

“2021 is going to be a difficult start but the Centre is here to help you and we ask that local residents consider Yate’s shops first if they need anything. If in doubt about what is on offer, please go to our website or contact the Centre Management.”

The following shops are expected to remain open during lockdown:

  • Miss Millies (takeaway only)
  • Barclays
  • Dominoes (takeaway only)
  • NatWest
  • Icelands
  • Boots
  • Specsavers
  • Rymans
  • HSBC
  • Nationwide
