Sanderson Arcade Opens More Stores in the Run up to Christmas!

2 December 2020

Sanderson Arcade in Morpeth re-opened more of the Centre’s stores today (December 2nd) as the national lockdown restrictions are relaxed in the run up to Christmas.

A number of stores including Sandersons Department Store, Mint Velvet, Hobbs, Mountain Warehouse, Seasalt, Fat Face, Crew Clothing and Waterstones were closed earlier this month following the government’s ruling on non-essential retail.

All stores can now re-open their doors to shoppers in the run up to Christmas along with hair and beauty salons, nail bars and gyms.

But the North East’s tier three restrictions mean that the Centre’s restaurants and cafes will have to remain closed for now except for takeaway.

Morpeth’s popular markets, including the weekly market and monthly Farmers’ Market can still go ahead – including this Saturday’s Farmers’ Market and a special Christmas Market on Saturday 12th December.

Stores including M&S, Pets at Home, Home Bargains, Martin McColls and Timpsons have been permitted to trade throughout the second national lockdown.  Now the Centre team is looking forward to welcoming more stores reopening this week.

Centre Manager, Lottie Thompson, said: “The Centre is all lit up and ready for Christmas and looks really lovely just now.

“Our essential stores have been trading and busy throughout November. Now we are looking forward to more stores being able to reopen on Wednesday and of course to welcoming more of our shoppers back to the Centre for their Christmas shopping.”

Most stores including Sandersons Department Store and M&S will be open for longer hours in the run up to Christmas and the Centre is planning a late-night opening on the following Thursdays:  December 3rd, December 10th, December 17th.  

M&S has extended its hours throughout December with a focus on providing safe and comfortable experiences for shoppers who have placed food orders. The Morpeth store will be open:

Monday 14th - Saturday 19th December till 11pm and Monday 21st - Wednesday 23rd till midnight.

For full update on store opening hours please check the Centre website for details of individual store opening times
