Christiana Mall will not reopen on June 1, as originally announced, due to a "safety precaution".
On its Facebook page, Christiana Mall has a graphic with two hands making the shape of heart and the message "we're opening June 1", then in next text under it, the message changes.
"UPDATE: As a safety precaution, we’ve made the decision to postpone our reopening. We look forward to welcoming back our community soon."
Christiana's decision came just hours before a group of rioters stormed the Dover Mall, breaking into a few stores, leading to a curfew from 9 p.m.-6 a.m. in Delaware's capital.
Malls are eligible to reopen under 30 percent capacity restrictions during Phase 1 of Delaware's reopening plan from COVID-19, but at least for now, Christiana Mall will not take part.
