Neighbouring intu is also open today, with only a few stores remaining closed.

Bosses at the centre:mk have been planning the phased re-opening for a number of weeks while working closely with the 190 retailers in the centre to put a health and wellbeing protocol in place.

The protocol reminds shoppers to ‘play your part’ and focuses on more than just social distancing. There are one-way traffic systems marked out around the centre and within stores and instructions are marked out on signs throughout the building.

Many shoppers are wearing masks today

.As Kevin Duffy, centre:mk director, said: “We have missed so many of our guests over the past few weeks and I am pleased to say we are now getting ready to welcome them back”.

He added: “As a community we have come a long way, thanks to the hard work of all the wonderful key workers, retail staff and centre team who are also our friends and family. It's important that we respect and protect all of their hard work by observing this guidance and we are

looking forward to seeing you all soon.”

The centre has 18 sets of doors, which will be held open and used for either entry or exit. A one-way, keep left system will be in operation, with clear markers on the floor indicating which way to walk.

There are clear safety markings

Capacities are being monitored throughout the day and stores may need to ask customers to wait to enter.
