Businesses Prepare To Reopen In New Hampshire


SALEM, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A mall near the New Hampshire/Massachusetts border is reopening for business with limited hours, after closing for more than a month due to COVID-19.

According to a spokesperson, the Mall at Rockingham Park will be open again starting Monday, May 11 along with several other malls and retailers in the Granite State.

Pheasant Lane Mall, the Mall of New Hampshire and the Merrimack Premium Outlets have also announced plans to reopen their doors on Monday.

Gov. Sununu had enacted a statewide stay-at-home order and directed the closure of all non-essential businesses as of March 26, and was set to expire on May 4.

On May 1, Sununu extended the order until May 31, prompting major protests in Concord the following day, with people calling for the state's economy to reopen.

However, the Governor's extended "Stay-At-Home Order 2.0" did relax some of the initial directive, allowing for parts of the economy to reopen this week.

As of Thursday, the state had confirmed 3,011 COVID-19 cases and 131 deaths attributed to the virus.
