Core Retail Opening Hours over the Festive Period.

With the welcome news that retail businesses are able to reopen, many of Norwich's larger retailers have worked with us to let us know that they are extending opening hours.

Core Opening Hours for December are currently 9am-7pm, with late-night shopping on Thursdays.

In light of the November closure, we are expecting the city centre and its retailers to experience increased demand. Most city centre shops will have a reduced capacity, in line with Government guidance, and it is important that social distancing is observed, alongside queue management.

Norwich BID have developed a physical distancing resource pack that you can access here.

Extended opening hours will help manage peak demand and flow in the city centre. We're working closely with our partners at both councils to ensure the city centre is as safe as possible for visitors and staff.

If you are extending your opening hours, please update your google listing, website, and social media.
