Nottingham city centre is home to some of the most popular brands and retailers in the UK, not to mention a superb variety of local independent businesses. With retail now open following the lift on lockdown, Christmas shopping awaits! Plan your trip with this helpful list of opening hours for some of Nottingham's most popular retailers. Many businesses in the city will be offering late night shopping all throughout December making your Christmas shopping more convenient than ever. Not only is this good for those who need to do their shopping after work but it's also safer. By offering longer opening hours, it reduces the need for everyone to do their shopping at the same time and creates a better environment for social distancing.  Nottingham has a lot to offer for shoppers and whilst this list doesn't contain every single business in the city, we're working hard to update it regularly as we receive additional information.
