CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Simon Properties, the largest mall owner in the United States, is planning to reopen its Charlotte-area malls, including Concord Mills and SouthPark, on Friday, May 8 as North Carolina prepares to enter Phase 1 of its COVID-19 reopening plan.
The multi-phase plan was announced by Governor Roy Cooper and is designed to gradually get non-essential businesses back open while maintaining social distancing to prevent a spike in coronavirus cases.
On its website, Simon currently has Concord Mills, SouthPark and the Charlotte Premium Outlets scheduled to reopen on May 8. This will come one week after their properties in South Carolina reopened Friday, May 1. Business hours will be limited to 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Sunday's hours will be noon until 6 p.m. This allows the malls to thoroughly sanitize and disinfect common areas.
