Keeping Safe Keeping Social - we're reopening Monday 13th July

At Princes Square our priority is to protect the health and wellbeing of our guests and teams in our retailers and restaurants. We have been following the best industry practices and Scottish Government advice and have introduced some measures to keep everyone social and safe.

The measures we have in place is as follows:

Maintain Social Distancing

Please maintain Social Distancing

We have introduced new social-distancing measures of two-meters between guests across Princes Square. This will also apply in all retailers. There will also be restrictions on the number of guests in any store at one time. The store capacity will be stated on each of the store windows. Each store will have different capacity due to the size and the number of staff. You may need to queue for stores, however, there is clear signage on where to queue.

You must wear a facemask

You must wear a face mask

We've put in place an easy to follow One Way system throughout the centre, with clearly marked arrows & directions for customers to follow.
