With the new draconian ‘stay-indoor’ orders from the government to restrict the spread of the Coronavirus, the county’s biggest shopping centre has become a virtual ghost town.

But Bluewater says some stores do remain open. However, the list of stores that have been forced to close is extensive.

The shopping mall said those open are the Marks and Spencer Food Hall including the pharmacy, Superdrug plus Holland and Barrett.

They said: “A number of our stores will still be operating online so please do visit their websites where they will be able to fulfil orders online.”

The website assures: “We are following all guidelines issued by Public Health England and continue to take a stringent and proactive approach to the cleanliness and hygiene of Bluewater.

“If you are travelling to Bluewater to visit a specific retailer, please check with them directly to ensure they are open before you leave home.”
