Outdoor Shopping Centers Reopen In Arizona
While Macerich reopened their outdoor shopping centers in the Phoenix area on Friday, May 8, all indoor malls will remain closed for a bit longer.
However, shoppers can rejoice, as allowed under Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey’s executive order, individual stores inside its malls are permitted to reopen for curbside pickups or appointments.
Macerich-owned outdoor shopper centers, including Kierland Commons, Biltmore Fashion Park, and SanTan Village have reopened.
All of the Macerich-owned indoor shopping malls, Arrowhead Towne Center, Chandler Fashion Center, Desert Sky Mall, Paradise Valley Mall, Scottsdale Fashion Square, and Superstition Springs Center will remain open for curbside order pickups or special appointments only. Any stores that have street-facing entrances are allowed to reopen.
At the present time, it was not immediately clear when malls are expected to fully reopen.
