REDDING, Calif. - The Mt. Shasta Mall reopened its doors for the first time in almost two months.

Over a dozen stores were open for shoppers. But some stores were not quite ready just yet, and are planning to open either later in the week or next. People lined up in front of their stores, waiting to go inside their favorite shops. Several stores owners ‘champing at the bit’ to open back up.

“It's hard to pay the bills when you're not making money, but we're excited to get going again,” said Dan Burton, owner of Kaleidoscope.

Back in March, Suzie Dunn closed her boutique. But for the first time in a while, she and her husband worked to get everything ready for shoppers.

“We hope to see people feeling comfortable being out that we can service them,” said Dunn. “Everybody's just anxious to get back to normal.”

While some people are cautiously optimistic.

“I think I would just be vigilant and cautious with where I put my hands,” said Tim Wilkins of Redding.

The mall even cutting down on the number of chairs and tables at the food court. Even placing six-feet markers on the ground to mark the social distance. Some stores even have hand sanitizing stations at the front.

Stores such as Zumiez are putting in their own precautions, such as limiting the number of people inside

Mall security will also be offering masks to shoppers, some stores will require customers to wear masks before they can come in. But the mall itself does not require shoppers to wear masks.
