From Saturday 28th November, Centre Court Shopping will be welcoming a new store to the Centre. Zero, located on the Upper Mall, is not only a new arrival for the Centre, is also the relocation of a brand-new concept for Wimbledon Town Centre, previously at home in the Merton Abbey Mills.

As a zero-waste grocery shop, Zero offers a simple alternative to excessive single-use packaging consumption with a wide range of ready-to-go bulk items. The concept is simple: bring your own containers and refill them with pasta, flour, lentils, cleaning products, toiletries among many other household day-to-day items.

With single-use plastic been widely reduced in many of the UK’s national brand supermarkets, the concept will be a welcomed addition to the Town for many of Centre Court’s customers and local residents.

Centre Manager Simon Plumb states ”Conversations began at a Merton Business Network for Climate Action event. The meeting brought together businesses from across Merton who are serious about taking action on the Climate Emergency. With the introduction of the Centre’s Green Theme and Merton’s green initiatives, this couldn’t be a better time to introduce such an environmentally conscious brand to the Centre.”

Fresh organic bread will also be available in the store every Saturday and Sunday. Visit Zero in Centre Court from Tuesday to Sunday from Saturday 28th November. For more information and opening hours, visit www.thezeroshop.com or www.centrecourtshopping.co.uk
