TROY, Mich. – Somerset Collection is opening its doors on Thursday as the state begins to reopen amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
“Our retailers are looking forward to re-engaging with our guests and delivering a customized experience that adheres to Governor Whitmer’s executive orders,” Nathan Forbes, Managing Partner of The Forbes Company said.
Somerset Collection will continue to offer curbside pickup.
“Somerset Collection began offering curbside pick-up five years ago, which allowed us to seamlessly re-activate this service in late April with more than 50 retailers participating,” Forbes said. “The recent decision to open retail within the current guidelines offers our staff and retailers the opportunity to welcome guests back to Somerset Collection with a laser focus on presenting a safe and comfortable environment.”
Officials say complimentary masks and water bottles (in lieu of drinking fountains) will be available to staff and customers. Greeters will open doors and provide masks to customers. Shoppers should also expect social distancing signage, hand sanitizing stations and purchase-only strollers.
The mall will have reduced hours and will only be open from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. daily and from noon until 6 p.m. on Sunday.
Somerset Collection’s restaurants will also continue carryout service.
