Good news.

Dundrum Town Centre has announced that it will officially re-open on 15 June, in line with the latest guidance from the Irish Government.

A range of measures to keep everyone safe have been introduced.

The Twits

Ensuring the safety of consumers, retailers and colleagues remains Dundrum Town Centre’s number one priority.

The independent inspection organisation Bureau Veritas has been appointed to analyse and approve the reopening plans of all of Hammerson’s flagship destinations, including Dundrum Town Centre, so that retailers and consumers can have high levels of confidence in its approach and procedures.

New safety measures being implemented to ensure the wellbeing of both customers and staff include;

-Introduction of one-way system to help customers safely navigate the centre

-Clear signage throughout the centre reminding consumers of the need to follow social distancing guidance, and to avoid shopping in large groups

-Installation of fixed hand sanitiser stations

-Customers are encouraged to wear face coverings when visiting the centre

-Using the centre’s communication channels including social media and digital in-mall displays to remind and guide visitors about how to stay safe

-Enhanced cleaning processes, with a clear focus on key customer touch points

-Live monitoring of footfall to ensure there aren’t too many people in the centre at any one time

-Introduction of queuing outside the centre when required to manage capacity

-Customers will be encouraged to use contactless payment with retailers for transactions

Information and guidance on dedicated shopping hours for the over 70s and those who are medically vulnerable will be available on Dundrum Town Centre’s website in the coming days, ahead of opening.

Customers are encouraged to check Dundrum Town Centre’s website for information on specific brands’ opening times before they visit.

Selected restaurant brands will continue to be available for takeaway and delivery, with further guidance expected from the Government in the coming weeks on when these venues can reopen for dine-in customers, and when leisure operators can re-open.
