Touchwood shopping centre in Solihull has given an update on what’s open and what the new rules are for visiting.
As we move into this latest nationwide lockdown – which has fallen right in the run-up to Christmas – many shoppers are still unsure what they can and cannot do, and which places are still open.
So we have rounded up a list of what’s open at the centre to help you plan your visits.
A spokesperson for Touchwood told BirminghamLive: “For all intents and purposes the doors of the centre are open.
“We just have to be mindful that we do not want people to just come here browsing. Shoppers need to be coming in for essential purchases and pick-ups.
“We would encourage people to use our services but to plan their time here to comply with Government regulations.”

Touchwood businesses open for takeaway
In the hospitality sector, restaurants, pubs, bars, cafes and canteens must close unless they can offer a takeaway service for food and non-alcoholic drinks between 5am and 10pm.
In Touchwood, the food and drink businesses continuing to operate but just on a takeaway basis are:
Pret A Manger
The spokesperson pointed out: “People can go into these premises to get takeaway food and drink but cannot stay inside to consume it.
“We also can’t allow people to eat or drink within the centre as a whole so outside in Theatre Square we have eight wooden chalets where people can go to eat their food and drink, as long as they sit together only with their family or bubble or with one other person.”
