The University Park Mall will be open for limited hours, starting Saturday.

The Simon Property Group announced Tuesday that they will be reopening 49 malls around the country this weekend, including the University Park Mall on Grape Road in Mishawaka.

Beginning May 2nd the mall will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and from noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays.

Each retailer will be deciding if they want to reopen for business.

Simon is encouraging all of their retailers to implement safety precautions and offer personal protection materials to their customers. Certain social distancing precautions will be taken around the mall.

The mall reopening is dependent on any changes to the stay at home order.


  1. There is no way I am patronizing the mall at this point in time. It is totally irresponsible of Simon Property Group to reopen at this time. When Hoosiers start dropping like flies again I hope customers hold them accountable.

    • Yeah just rioters , looting and idiots breaking laws , assaulting people, burning buildings, flipping over vehicles, dragging a truck driver out of his semi and beating him half to death……yeah! Let these loosing racists pay for their crimes and anyone who disagrees with what I just said MAY THE LORD HELP YOU

  2. Yes! The shutdown was ridiculous in the first place. Check out the situation in Sweden. No shutdown in that country and they are doing fine. It was beyond stupid to shutdown our entire economy for a nasty cold with a 99%+ survival rate. Wash your hands like they taught you in Kindergarten and don’t sneeze and cough on people.
