Southwest Florida shopping malls reopen to shoppers

Waterside Shops, which reopens at noon today, is one of the last area malls to welcome back shoppers after being closed for many weeks because of the coronavirus pandemic. The upscale outdoor mall in Naples will have limited hours and not all stores and services will be available at first. Three of Southwest Florida’s enclosed malls—Port Charlotte Town Center, Edison Mall in Fort Myers and Coastland Center in Naples—reopened Friday. Other regional outdoor malls such as Coconut Point, Gulf Coast Town Center, Miromar Outlets, Bell Tower Shops, Mercato and the Village Shops on Venetian Bay reopened earlier last week. Shoppers are encouraged to continue to practice hand-sanitizing and social distancing.
