SHOPPERS can shop until they drop as Merry Hill launches its festive extended late night openings.

From tomorrow (Monday) the shopping centre will be open until 10pm on weekdays as well as 8pm on Saturday and 5pm on Sundays, with opening hours extending further until midnight in the final week before Christmas (December 17 – 21).

Kelly Reed, marketing manager at Westfield Merry Hill said: “The festive season can be a bit manic – so we’re hoping to give a helping hand and make everything as convenient as possible for our customers this year.

“Our long opening hours, particularly on the weekdays, will give customers the ultimate flexibility and our free parking means it doesn’t have to cost the earth to go shopping. We also have a host of exciting events and activities planned this year to keep shoppers entertained. “No other shopping centre in the Midlands is staying open as late as Merry Hill so we anticipate lots of late night shopping trips!”
