MERIDIAN, Idaho — The Village at Meridian and the stores in it are getting ready to reopen, with the health and safety of the community a priority. There will be noticeable changes to the property, including more hand sanitizing stations and increased cleaning of high-touch areas and bathrooms.

All Village staff will wear face masks and gloves or working behind a screen when in a public location. There will be signs encouraging social distancing and markings on the ground showing appropriate distancing. The playground will remain closed and groups larger than acceptable will be reminded to comply with social distancing guidelines.

The shopping center is complying with guidelines and protocols set by the state.

“Once the Governor released the staged reopening of Idaho, our retailers quickly put plans in motion to get open starting May 1st," said Hugh Crawford, General Manager of The Village at Meridian. "A handful of retailers were prepared and ready to open this past Friday while others are working on meeting state and local guidelines in order to open responsibly. We really appreciate everyone’s understanding as we continue to support our tenants in their re-opening.”

Businesses will reopen on different days, so check the Village at Meridian website or call concierge at 208-501-8207 for a list of open stores.
