All stores licensed to remain fully open in Bluewater despite Level 4 restrictions


Kent entering Level 4 coronavirus restrictions has forced all “non-essential” stores to close in Bluewater.
Non-essential stores have joined with restaurants and cafes in not being allowed to accommodate members of the public.

The move comes as tighter restrictions were announced by Boris Johnson in a bid to bring the coronavirus under control.

However, the center is not completely closed. A number of stores in Bluewater still offer click-and-collect services while more than a dozen “essential” stores have been permitted to remain open.

On Saturday, shoppers flocked to the Greenhithe Mall to try and make the most of the last hours of all stores.

The decision to close the stores almost immediately left some desperate for a gift for a loved one.

The situation was different on the first day of the new restrictions as the mall was almost empty.

Essential stores that can stay open include banks, supermarkets, and health care stores.

Below is the full list of all stores that remain fully open.

Please visit the Bluewater website to see the exact opening hours for these stores as they differ as Christmas approaches on Friday.
