The Galleria shopping centre in Hatfield is set to reopen on Monday as COVID-19 restrictions continue to ease across the country. 

The popular designer outlet centre will welcome back shoppers from April 12, with director Tim Stirling saying: “The entire team here at The Galleria is looking forward to welcoming our brand partners and guests back.  

“The health and safety of everyone who visits our centre is our number one priority, as it has been throughout this crisis and we continue to follow the government’s guidelines. 

 “Our teams are incredibly experienced in keeping the centre safe and clean. A huge thank you to our team for all their hard work in preparing for this moment, they are now very well practiced in managing the re-opening of non-essential retail. 

“We’re very much looking forward to opening our doors again and welcoming people back for a safe and enjoyable experience at The Galleria.”
