JUST IN: Tysons Corner Center Now Fully Open Again

(Updated at 4:25 p.m.) Shoppers can find more than take-out from restaurants at Tysons Corner Center now that the mall is back open.

It is one of 20 malls that operator Macerich announced today (Tuesday) has fully reopened.

Fox 5 reported that shoppers at Forever 21, Kay Jewelers and more confused some people, but noted that Gov. Ralph Northam’s temporary restrictions due to COVID-19 say that non-essential businesses can stay open if they limit customers to 10 people or less.

Shoppers at Tysons Corner Center can expect “enhanced sanitation practices and social distancing protocols in place,” according to Macerich’s announcement.

“Nationwide, our centers create employment for more than 110,000 people, and our portfolio generates approximately $1.1 billion in sales tax revenues and $225 million in property taxes that support essential services at every level,” Thomas O’Hern, Macerich’s CEO, said.

Previously, Macerich has stated that keeping Tysons Corner Center open — while other malls operators closed — helps employees at the mall.

“Local economies depend on us, and our retailers are eager and ready to open for business in a safe, carefully planned, well-executed manner,” O’Hern said in the announcement.

Macerich’s CFO recently said that about 26% of billed rent for Macerich malls were collected in April.
