The relaunch of all retail across its seven community shopping centres announced by Capital & Regional.

As the government will be easing restrictions on retail stores across the country from 15 June, Capital & Regional will be allowing all retailers who had previously been prevented from trading to open and operate across its portfolio of seven UK community shopping centres.

The exception to this is the leisure and dining facilities which, unless solely operating a takeaway or delivery service, will remain closed until the restrictions are eased further. This will include its London-based centres, The Mall Wood Green, The Mall Walthamstow and Exchange Ilford, as well as The Marlowes in Hemel Hempstead, The Mall Maidstone, The Mall Luton and The Mall Blackburn.

Lawrence Hutchings, CEO, Capital & Regional, said: “We are pleased to begin welcoming back retailer customers, guests and staff, further to the government’s easing of lockdown restrictions. Our priority now is ensuring that everyone in our centres feels as safe as possible in the knowledge that we have taken every possible measure to protect their health and wellbeing as more of our retailers re-open stores.”
