Aberdeen's Union Square confirms reopening date

Aberdeen's Union Square shopping centre has confirmed it will begin welcoming customers back on Monday.

Non-essential retailers are allowed to reopen as restrictions ease.

The centre will open its doors at 9am with a number of stores, cafes and restaurants back in operation.

The centre says it has a range of safety measures in place, including a one-way system at peak times, signage throughout and enhanced cleaning.

Ryan Manson, general manager, said: "It is great to be able to welcome customers back and I know our brands are looking forward to re-opening their doors next week.

"Safety remains a priority and the measures we put in place last year will continue, including mandatory face coverings, hand sanitiser stations and enhanced cleaning.

"We'd like to say thanks to everyone for supporting us. To all those who have kept essential stores and our food takeaway services open, along with the Union Square team and of course our customers.

"It’s great to see the arrival of an exciting new brand to the mix, the re-opening of so many of our retailers and indoor dining which we know is a major milestone for all of our colleagues and the local people of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire."
