Dear Manager / Proprietor,

Reference – Christmas Opening Hours 2017

Please find below details of the opening hours of the shopping centre taken from the questionnaires returned.  Out of 28 shops and 1 Kiosk, 29 questionnaires were returned.  The opening hours have been dictated by the majority and discussed and agreed with the anchor retailers Next, New Look, H&M and TJ Hughes.  The opening hours will be advertised and marketed as such.  All stores should be trading the same time to ensure a consistent message is delivered across all marketing platforms.

 

Please note that the lease obligation is to open 9am – 5.30pm Monday to Saturday and either 10am – 4pm or 11am – 5pm on Sundays or ‘Such other reasonable hours as the Landlord shall notify the tenant’.  This does not affect those that have side terms to their lease that state different opening hours.  Please ensure you trade as per the timings below.

 

A log will be kept by security to record the opening hours of the shops for the dates below and as standard practice these details will be sent to head offices.
