In line with Government guidance on 23 March calling for an escalation of Coronavirus social distancing measures, The Ridings Centre is now closed for all retailers except those providing essential goods and services – food & grocery, pharmacies, banks, post offices and funeral directors.

Please check retailers’ social media channels and websites for news on individual store closures or opening times.

The situation is evolving quickly so please be aware that published opening hours may vary among retailers and change at short notice.


The customer service and information desk is located outside M&S on the upper mall inside the Ridings Shopping Centre.

The friendly and knowledgeable team are on hand to assist with any enquiry you have about the centre and have a wide range of information to pick up about things to see and do in the local area.
