West Acres Mall has announced their reopening date.
According to a post on the West Acres Mall website, the doors will reopen to the public on Friday, May 8.
“Over the past few weeks we have worked diligently on our re-opening strategy to ensure that when we open our doors to the public, we do so in the safest way possible,” mall officials said in a release on the shopping center’s website. “We have taken in feedback and guidance from our teams, our store owners and managers, leaders in our industry, as well as Governor Burgum, and the CDC.”
The mall says that, for the forseeable future, things will be different at the mall. The mall will be open from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m., until further notice. There will be no early walking hours, mall officials say. In addition, visitors 16 years and younger must be accompanied by a legal guardian.
West Acres has also implemented extensive cleaning protocols.
All team members will wear masks, for the safety of customers and staff. West Acres management strongly recommends wearing a mask during visits to the mall, for the protection of all patrons of the mall.
The mall will limit furniture and amenities offered throughout the facility.
“These changes not only protect our visitors and employees, but also give our team the opportunity to place their focus on the extensive cleaning and sanitation standards we have put in place,” the mall said.
Stores will also have their own precautions and operational changes including the ability to re-open as they see fit.
