PremierLeague-News.Com - Parts of the shopping centre will reopen, but VUE Cinema will still be closed
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Retailers in Reading's Oracle Shopping Centre will open its doors for the first time this year as the next stage of the government's roadmap begins. Monday, April 12, will see shops around Reading and Berkshire reopening as more coronavirus restrictions are eased. That includes The Oracle, and shoppers can return to a number of the shops and restaurants in the centre. The opening time will be 9.30am and retailers including Next Beauty and Home and Apple will reopen. Those needing a haircut or a beauty treatment will be able to head back to the likes of Supercuts and Lush. Newcomers include American chicken wing specialist Wingstop, which will open later this month. Restaurants with outdoor seating are also set to reopen, including Wagamama, Comptoir Libanais, The Real Greek and Las Iguanas. The Vue Cinema will not reopen as the government's guidelines do not yet allow for cinemas and other indoor attractions. Opening hours are likely to be different for the individual stores. Shoppers are advised to check the Oracle website.

What safety measures will be in place? There will be a number of measures in place at the shopping centre. These include: A one-way system to help customers safely navigate the centre Mandatory face coverings throughout the centre, unless people are exempt Clear signage reminding people of the need to follow social distancing guidance, and to avoid shopping in large groups Enhanced cleaning processes, with a clear focus on key customer touch points Fixed hand sanitiser stations throughout Customers will be encouraged to use contactless payment with retailers for transactions Andy Briggs, general manager at The Oracle, said: “It is great to be able to welcome customers back with a wider offer and I know our brands are looking forward to reopening 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." The Oracle has also teamed up with #WeSupportDeafAwareness initiative which has been launched due to the difficulties the deaf and hard of hearing have experienced during lockdown and the inability to lip read due to the barrier of mask-wearing. All stores have been asked to pledge their support and staff will be undergoing extensive training and be provided with promotional material to show support.
