Sheffield's Fox Valley is reopening more stores for Christmas shoppers

Fox Valley in north Sheffield is reopening more of the centre’s stores as the national lockdown restrictions are relaxed in the run-up to Christmas.

Thursday, 3rd December 2020, 9:14 am

Non-essential retail stores including Sandersons Department Store, M&Co, Next and Seasalt can now reopen, along with hair and beauty salons, nail bars and gyms.

South Yorkshire’s tier three restrictions mean that the centre’s restaurants will have to remain closed for now, although some are offering a takeaway service throughout December.

Fox Valley’s popular markets, including the Christmas Market, can still go ahead. The Christmas market will run on December 4-6 with a range of local produce as well as crafts and gift ideas.

"We are looking forward to more stores able to reopen and of course to welcoming more of our shoppers back to the centre for their Christmas shopping.”
