Back to Business – Safely and Responsibly
In strict accordance with the directives of Governor Andy Beshear’s Reopening Kentucky strategy, Kentucky Oaks Mall will reopen to the public on Wednesday, May 20. Although normal mall hours of 10AM-9PM Monday through Saturday and 11AM-6PM on Sunday will resume immediately, it is suggested that patrons call or check online for the hours of operations of individual stores.
We look forward to welcoming our friends, neighbors, merchants and visitors. They can rest assured that extensive measures are in place to make every visit a safe and healthy one. All businesses and patrons are urged to follow the state’s Healthy at Work plan, which provides guidance for protecting the health of employees, customers, and their families, which may be found here: https://govstatus.egov.com/ky-healthy-at-work.
Those who visit Kentucky Oaks Mall beginning May 20 will notice several changes. Throughout the mall, best practices will be employed to enhance social distancing. The mall’s stringent cleaning standards will be intensified, especially in high-touch areas. Visitors will also notice new signage and physical barriers to encourage everyone to practice safe-distancing and other healthy behaviors. Many of the mall’s retailers will now be offering “Mall To Go” curbside pickup at designated mall entrances by calling your favorite store, in advance, to place orders.

While the mall itself will be open, some stores, restaurants and other businesses may be opening at a later date or with alterations to their normal routine. Anyone who operates a business at Kentucky Oaks Mall is urged to contact the mall property manager at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss reopening procedures.
Because of the high demand for Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), Kentucky Oaks Mall is developing an easy way for locally-based manufacturers and retailers of such gear to get their products to the people who need them. Local manufacturers and retailers of PPE may qualify for FREE rent at the PPE Marketplace. They are encouraged to contact Chris Connors at the mall’s leasing office for details. He may be reached at 330-743-7690 or by email at: email@example.com.
