WILLOW GROVE, PA — Willow Grove Park Mall officially reopened its doors to the public on Friday, June 26, the first day Montgomery County moves to the green phase of the state's graduated coronavirus mitigation plan.
Masks are required for customers to the mall, officials clarified. Masks will be available for free to all customers at the door, according to Preit, the owners of the mall.
Preit expressed optimism their malls would flourish economically upon reopening
"Traffic and data for (Preit's) open properties support a strong return for its retail and experiential tenants," the company said in a statement announcing a broad reopening of their properties across the Delaware Valley, including neighboring Plymouth Meeting Mall, over the coming weeks.
The mall will be operating at reduced hours: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday through Saturday, and noon through 6 p.m. on Sunday.
