Swan Walk shopping centre in Horsham has been evacuated for the second time today (Tuesday June 12).
The fire alarms, which sounded at around 9am this morning and 12.45pm this afternoon, are believed to be false, say West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service.
One resident said shoppers were asked to leave their shopping behind before they were ushered out into the Carfax.
The emergency fire screens were activated.
Shoppers have since returned to the centre.
