The policies and opening times of these stores will vary - so we always recommend checking directly with retailers before setting off. A full list of up to date closures and opening times are available on our website which is updated as often as possible.
We ask that customers visiting our centre abide by social distancing rules;
  • A face covering must be worn in all parts of the centre and our stores.
  • We are aware that some customers may be exempt from wearing a face covering and not every disability may be visible, so we ask that you please be understanding.
  • Keep 2m apart where possible
  • All food and drink sold in the Centre is for takeaway service only and must be consumed outside of the premises.
  • Do not visit the centre with anyone outside of your household or support bubble.
  • Hand sanitiser is available throughout the centre, but please remember to wash your hands regularly.
  • Floor markings are in place to remind everyone to maintain social distance.
  • Please only use the marked queuing areas for our stores.
  • During busy periods we may have to restrict or suspend entry to the centre to help us safely manage social distancing.
  • Please observe the ENTRY and EXIT signs on centre doors.
  • Lifts are restricted to 1 person or 1 family to a lift.
  • Wilko’s New Street entrance will remain closed for the time being so that we can manage the number of people coming into the Centre.
  • We request that you avoid waiting or gathering in the centre – move on as quickly as possible once you have your shopping and do not arrange to meet people at the centre.
  • Use contactless payment where possible.
  • Our staff are here to help but please remember to keep your distance.
  • Please remember to be kind, respectful and patient – your safety is our priority.
Further guidance is available from the government website.
The Alhambra Centre car park will remain open to customers to ensure they have easy access to essential items within the centre. Our car park is open from 8.00am for customers with access to the shops through level 3A only. 
Centre doors and the car park will close at 5.30pm.
Toilet and baby change facilities are open for customer use. 
The health and safety of our customers, colleagues and community is our top priority and we are doing everything we can to support them during this difficult time. Please be assured that enhanced cleaning regimes remain in place, particularly of key touchpoints such as door handles, lifts, escalators and toilets.
We will be using our website, social channels and newsletter to stay in touch, and hopefully bring you some joy and light-relief in the difficult weeks ahead. Visit us at, connect with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and register to receive our newsletter, which will mean you don’t miss out on developments.
Our site teams are available to help visitors with any questions they may have.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Alhambra Centre just as soon as it is safe to do so. Stay safe, stay home if you can, and look after each other. 
We’d like to thank you for your continued support and patience.
The Alhambra Centre Team.
