We are delighted to announce our new Kids Club to make shopping with children easier for families. When you sign up to kids club you will receive special offers for yourself and your child. You can attend free children’s events throughout the year and you can join our ‘child safe’ scheme giving you peace of mind when shopping in a busy centre. There will be many other initiatives throughout the year to keep children entertained.
What we’ve done
NewRiver, our shopping centre owner/managers has been looking at ways to improve the retail experience for families with young children and has brought on board child psychologist Dr Sam Wass. Sam, who appears on Channel 4’s The Secret Life of Four Year Olds series, suggests ways to help understand the reasons behind shopping centre temper tantrums.
Owen Acland, at Templars Square, comments: “Most of us have all experienced our own kids having a meltdown or felt the pain of other parents struggle to keep their toddler happy while shopping. At Templars Square, we’ve been working with Sam to come up with several tactics to make shopping more fun for small children. Our Kids Club will offer free events for children throughout the year, special offers for parents who sign up, and a ‘child safe’ scheme giving parents peace of mind when out shopping. Based on our research, we believe this will help keep children amused and incentivise good behaviour meaning happy families all around.”
