BIG FLATS, N.Y. (WETM) – The Arnot Mall will not be reopening as scheduled on May 29, according to a messege sent by the mall to store owners.

Businesses that can reopen starting Friday includes: Barbershops/Hair salons; Commercial Buildings; Retail Rental, Repair, and Cleaning; Auto Dealerships/Rentals; Offices; General Retail (with restrictions); and Real Estate.
Businesses MUST read and affirm the guidelines posted on the Governor’s website and have a safety plan available for customers and staff.
