Santa’s Grotto and Extended Shopping for the Bridges
Sunderland’s The Bridges shopping centre is gearing up for the busiest time of the year, with the gift of extended opening hours.
The Bridges is preparing for Christmas shoppers and the busy festive season by unveiling extended opening hours and free parking,
From 11th – 22th December, the Bridges will be open until 8pm Monday to Friday, with free parking after 5.30pm in both the Debenhams and roof top car parks.
December will also see the return of the popular Santa’s Grotto, where the man in red himself will be making a list of what children want for Christmas and checking their place on the nice list.
Samantha Czwordon-Wright, marketing manager at the Bridges, is delighted to welcome Santa back to Sunderland.
“The whole shopping centre gets into the festive spirit in December and after a successful year with the arrival of new retailers, we know there’s more on offer than ever before,” she said.
“We know the build up to Christmas is a hectic time for everyone so we hope that offering late night shopping in December will give our customers extra time to make the most of our fantastic retailers.”
Santa’s Grotto opens on 16th November with a £2 entry fee which will go to support good causes through Sunderland’s SR1 Rotary Group.
