Christmas Opening Hours and Information

Just a few weeks to go until Christmas is upon us, but there’s still plenty of time to get your shopping done before the big day - with extended opening hours at Aberafan Shopping Centre to fit around any schedule.

For the first 2 weeks of December, we have extended opening hours every Friday until 7pm, and from Monday 14th, December the shopping centre will be open every weekday until 7pm - which will end at 7pm on the 23rd December.

On Saturdays over Christmas, the centre will close at 5:30pm, and Sundays at 4pm. The centre will also be open on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, so you can grab those final bits and pieces even at the last moment.

We hope you have a wonderful time visiting the centre this Christmas, and please remember to follow all safety guidelines to ensure everybody’s shopping experience is safe and enjoyable.
