Many outdoor retail stores are reopening to in-person sales on Friday after nearly two months of closure, with new protocols.
Although the stay-at-home order was extended to May 15, Ducey announced last week that some retailers could partially reopen on Friday if they establish social distancing and sanitizing measures.
In the order, Ducey stated stores located within an “enclosed area,” like an indoor shopping mall with one entrance, are still limited to delivery or curbside services and appointments only.
Outdoor malls reopening Friday including Kierland Commons, Biltmore Fashion Park, SanTan Village, and La Encantada in Tucson.
It is unclear when indoor shopping malls such as Scottsdale Fashion Square, Chandler Fashion Center or Paradise Valley Mall will resume in-person shopping.
The open-air mall in north Scottsdale plans to reopen some retail stores on Friday, Scottsdale Quarter confirmed.
The Biltmore Fashion Park’s website lists four stores that plan to reopen: Cornelia Park, Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma and The Clotherie (appointment only).
Select dine-in restaurants will resume service May 11.
Tucson Premium Outlets and Phoenix Premium Outlets plan to open Friday. Arizona Mills will open May 16.
The plans are based on each state’s stay-at-home order and can change at any time, the company said on its website.
Employees will be required to screen themselves for a temperature above 100.4 degrees or for flu-like symptoms before coming into work. They will also wear face masks and maintain a 6-feet distance from other coworkers.
