The popular outlet retail village Gretna Gateway opened for the first time yesterday.

Thirty-five of the stores at the Gretna Gateway Outlet Village reopened.

The shopping complex has put measures in place to ensure social distancing. A spokesman said: “Here at Gretna Gateway, the health and wellbeing of our customers and staff continues to be our top priority.

“You will notice some changes when shopping with us which we would like to update you on ahead of your visit."

It is operating an "In and Out", asking customers to enter the mall at the south gate, closest to Nike and Next, and leave by the north gate, by M&S and Costa.

“There will be a restricted number of customers allowed on the mall at one time to allow social distancing measures to be safely followed and a queuing system will be in place."
