Christmas is fast approaching and Bluewater has announced a way you can shop for festive goodies whilst avoiding the crowds.

A new online shopping portal has been created in time for the festive season and will allow shoppers to buy presents for delivery or collection at Bluewater.

Shoppers can research presents without having to rush through packed crowds, and choose from over a million items from Bluewater's many stores.

The portal has been created by Landsec, Bluewater's co-owner. 

Ailish Christian-West, head of shopping centres at Landsec, said: “Our priority at Landsec is providing guests with a unique experience, one that complements their needs and aspirations. Whilst nothing quite beats the physical experience of visiting one of our retail and leisure destinations, the new shopping portal reflects how people are increasingly living their lives.

"Our guests can now move seamlessly between the physical and virtual worlds to make purchases and enjoy experiences."

Bluewater will still have extended opening hours over the festive period, but will be trialling the online portal here.
