We’re on a mission to ensure Union Square has a positive impact on the communities surrounding it, that’s why we’re getting involved in Purple Tuesday, the UK’s accessible shopping day. We’re committed to making the shopping experience here even more inclusive for customers with disabilities on 13 November and beyond. 

For starters:
- We will be hosting two quiet hours on the day at 11am to 12pm and 4pm to 5pm

- Fidget toys and ear plugs will be available from our Customer Service Desk

- Soundscapes in the mall and our Christmas lighting will be turned off

- Archway, a local charity will be with us in the North Atrium with their Good Wish Wall. Archway offer a range of innovative community based services to improve the opportunities available and quality of life for people with learning disabilities in Aberdeen and throughout the North East area.

- Guide Dogs Scotland will also be here offering customers workarounds highlighting the challenges of people with disabilities and advising on how to help

Going forward

- We will hold a quiet hour on the mall each month 

We look forward to seeing you on Purple Tuesday!
