Coronavirus Northern Ireland: Buttercrane Manager explains reopening steps

Following Economy Minister Diane Dodds announcement, Buttercrane Centre expects to see the phased reopening of non-essential retailers over the next ten days.

Speaking to Newry Times, Peter Murray, Centre Manager said, “Stores are responding as quickly as possible to this afternoon’s news and are working behind the scenes on staff training, deep cleaning and putting the final touches to adapting store layouts for reopening.



“We would anticipate that from Monday 15 June,  the number of non-essential retailers open will increase on a daily basis and add to the list of trading stores.

“Please appreciate this is a very fluid situation and we will endeavour to update customers as soon more stores are added to the ‘now open’ list.



“At this stage, it’s important to note that we have no known dates from the centre’s large anchor tenants Primark or Dunnes Stores to reopen, given that they have hundreds of staff returning to work, all of whom are subject to pre-start protocols.

“They are working swiftly to be able to welcome customers and staff in a safe way.



“We appreciate your patience over the entire lockdown period and we look forward to welcoming you back to Buttercrane, here in the heart of Newry City,” he added.
