MERRY Hill is laying on a new free shuttle bus to help make last-minute shopping stress free.

The bus will run this Saturday and Sunday (December 15 and 16) and on Saturday and Sunday December 22 and 23 to take shoppers parking at the Waterfront down to a drop-off point outside Sainsbury’s at Merry Hill and back again.

Kelly Reed, Merry Hill marketing manager, said: “With the big day fast approaching, we thought we’d work a Christmas miracle and help out our busy shoppers.

“The shuttle bus will relieve the congestion that inevitably builds up at this time of year - customers can now shop til they drop, hop on the bus and be whisked back to their cars hassle-free.”

The bus will run from 9am to 8pm on Saturdays and from 11am to 5pm on Sundays.

Shoppers should follow the Santa signs as they drive in.

From Monday December 17 to Friday December 21 the centre will also be open until midnight.
