Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust plans to reopen its Fashion District Philadelphia mall in Center City on July 3, as restrictions aimed at limiting the spread of the coronavirus are lifted in the city.
The mall, formerly known as the Gallery at Market East, is scheduled to resume operations on the same day that businesses including malls, gyms, and restaurants are being permitted to reopen in Philadelphia. All that is occurring under Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s timeline for relaxing restrictions that have halted much of the city’s economic activity.
PREIT’s 20 other malls, which are in suburban locations in nine states, are scheduled to all be operating by June 29, the company said. Those properties include the Cherry Hill Mall, where malls are being permitted to reopen on June 29 by Gov. Phil Murphy.
