Malls in New Jersey are set to open Monday, June 29 – but shoppers will have some new experiences as the establishments implement COVID-19 safety protocols.
“We’ve actually been preparing our mall since the closure,” says Preit senior marketing director Lisa Wolstromer.
Preit represents malls in Cherry Hills, Cumberland and Moorestown. Wolstromer says that the malls have added signage to their centers and added sanitizing stations. They have also removed certain amenities like seating and kiddie rides to prevent congregation. Entrances will also be limited – the mall in Cherry Hill will only have two.
“We’ll have two welcome stations and there’ll be a security person at each welcome station counting people coming in and then also, if a person doesn’t have a mask, we’ll have a free mask to give them,” Wolstromer says.
All three of the malls will also be enforcing a new policy when it comes to minors. No one under the age of 18 will be allowed in without a parent or guardian – someone over the age of 21.
“Once I think that the state guidelines increase for capacity, we’re going to keep evaluating that. That is a temporary placement for right now,” Wolstromer says.
There will also be options for shoppers who are not comfortable going inside the malls right now.

“Many of our retailers are offering curbside pickup where you can come to the mall, park in one of our designated spaces and an employee from the store will come and put the purchase in your car and it’s contact-free and safe,” Wolstromer says.
The malls will operate on limited hours for now and will be open from 11 am. Until 7 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Hours on Sunday will be 12 p.m. until 6 p.m.
