Bicester Village’s Shopping Protocol to keep everyone safe
Bicester Village has brought in various measures to make shopping easier. Face masks are mandatory inside boutiques and are recommended throughout the whole village. Shoppers will also have their temperatures measured. There are hand sanitizing and hand washing facilities available.
More interestingly, as only a certain amount of people are allowed inside each boutique, there is a digital queueing system in place. Simply book a space in the queue via text message and a shopping time slot will be sent to your phone. The quietest shopping times are on weekdays between 9am to 11am and 6pm to 8pm. The full set of health measures can be found here.
The Private Sale, with triple Avios, runs from today until 1st November. Don’t forget to register for your free Bicester Village Privilege membership first via this link.
