Shopping in the heart of Ellesmere Port

Port Arcades

Welcome to Port Arcades Shopping Centre in Ellesmere Port

** Essential retailers are open   **

As we have now entered a lockdown situation again, only essential retailers are open.  For up to date information on which retailers are open please check our Facebook page at facebook.com/portarcades. 

Please be assured we have been working hard to make the Centre as safe as possible for shoppers and have enhanced Covid cleaning and hygiene measures in place, which includes hand sanitiser stations, increased cleaning of all touch points with anti viral cleaning products and the removal of all mall furniture to help shoppers adhere to social distancing.  When you visit, please work with us to keep you, your family, your fellow shoppers and our wonderful staff healthy by following our safety guidelines.

We have introduced a keep right one way system to ensure that  social distancing can be achieved, but crossing over is permitted if you need to visit a store on the other side.

You will see extensive social distancing signage situated on the floors, poster sites and at other prominent locations around the Centre – please adhere to these to help everyone stay safe.

Shoppers are asked to ‘shop and go’ rather than congregate on the malls, as this will not only cause a delay for other shoppers wanting to enter the Centre, but create a potential transmission point.

We are requesting that whenever possible you shop alone and wear a face mask if you are able to do so.

If you are feeling unwell or you or anyone you live with has any symptoms of Covid 19 please do not enter the Centre.

Thank you for your co-operation
