Suttonians urged to back business

Gracehurch Centre safe say bosses as shops get ready to open

With the imminent reopening of non-essential retail, The Gracechurch Centre in Sutton Coldfield has worked hard to ensure visitors and staff feel safe ahead of their much anticipated and welcomed return to the centre.

The majority of stores at The Gracechurch Centre which were deemed non-essential during the last Covid-19 lockdown will be able to re-open from Monday 12th April following the latest easing of Government restrictions. 

To help support retailers, the Gracechurch Centre is encouraging residents of Sutton Coldfield to shop local and support their local businesses as they look to recover from impact of the pandemic. The team will be promoting offers and events throughout the next few months via its social media channels.

This will include the redressing of the centre to fit the ‘spring in bloom’ theme and welcoming back live music in Bishops Court at the weekend. Shoppers will also be able to take advantage of The Gracechurch Centre’s Concierge Crew, who will be ready to welcome back visitors and help guide them round the centre next week.

Angela Henderson Centre Manager of The Gracechurch Centre said: “We can’t wait for the return of customers to The Gracechurch Centre and would like to thank our fantastic team who have worked very hard to support our retailers during this challenging time. As lockdown restrictions start to ease, we urge people to shop local and visit the centre to help support their local retailers.

The Gracechurch Centre is following Government guidelines to keep staff and visitors safe, and the centre team has worked in partnership with retailers to develop detailed plans which include an enhanced cleaning regime, hand sanitiser stations posted throughout the centre, an increased customer service presence, and refreshed signage to help customers adhere to social distancing requirements.

Angela added: “A great deal of effort has gone into making The Gracechurch Centre a safe place for staff and customers. Everyone has a part to play in this, and we would ask all our customers to be respectful of others and always follow the latest Government guidelines as closely as possible when visiting the centre. We’d also like to thank those essential businesses who have supported the community throughout the lockdown.”

“We can’t wait to welcome you all back.”
