Dozens of stores opening in Kelowna's Orchard Park mall next week

May 15, 2020 - 4:10 PM

When Orchard Park Shopping Centre reopens its doors next week expect to have about 45 stores to shop at.

That's the projected number offered today, May 15, by Vikki Webster, the mall's marketing manager.

"We are in communication with our retailers daily and based on that information we anticipate approximately 45 stores to be open, with more opening over the next couple of weeks," she wrote in an email.

The mall normally has about 160 stores but throughout the COVID-19 pandemic only a handful of stores were open. Only one mall entrance was open.

The mall's webpage lists a dozen stores that are open today from noon to 5 p.m. The hours as of Tuesday, May 19, will be from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Check that site for further openings.

"The mall and our stores are following the guidelines set out by the public health authority for B.C. and during this quiet time we have cleaned and sanitized all the common areas of the mall," Webster wrote. "The extra attention to sanitization of our common area’s will continue indefinitely. Keeping our shoppers and employees safe is our top priority."

"Shoppers can expect to see hand sanitizer stations available throughout the mall and at each entrance, frequent signage and visual reminders about physical distancing measures and reduced seating and gathering places in the common areas of our mall. At this time Orchard Park will not be lending out any of our strollers, wheelchairs or scooters from guest services."
