This is with the exception of Poundland, Boots , Grapetree and Tesco Express. We will be partially closing the centre, with the only access via Heygate Avenue - opposite Southend Bus Station and also the High Street entrance for access to Grapetree.
We will also be closing the public toilets, and car park until further notice.
The centre is following Government advice.
The centre’s team and its cleaning contractors have for some time been carrying out an enhanced cleaning regime and that will continue.
The Royals Shopping Centre manager Dawn Jeakings said:
“The wellbeing of our customers and our staff is of prime importance, during this difficult and trying time. Our cleaners are being appropriately thorough and paying particular attention to surfaces and items such as hand rails. Everyone who works here has been thoroughly briefed on the steps to take to best keep themselves and our visitors protected and we will continue to follow any guidance issued by the Government and its Chief Medical Officer. Wishing all of our loyal customers well and keep safe.“
Shoppers can check for any updates on the centre’s website and social media.
