I know not everybody wants to hear this - but we've reached the point where we're going to blink and the holidays are going to be here. As I'm writing this, a quick visit to the website that gives you a countdown to Christmas shows we're only 66 days and a handful of hours away from our big day of being holly and jolly. So it seems like a fitting time for Southgate Mall to stretch out the business hours a bit.

The mall has announced they'll have extended hours beginning today. They'll basically open an hour earlier every Monday through Saturday now, from 10 AM to 7 PM.

At Southgate Mall we continue to be inspired by the resilience of our community and have enjoyed safely welcoming back our guests and the community once again. We are happy to announce Southgate Mall will offer new expanded hours on October 19 with hours of:

Monday-Saturday: 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM
Sunday: 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM

A press release from the mall also addresses how the mall is approaching sanitary measures during the pandemic.

We are focused on providing a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. With the continued need to address COVID-19, our already rigorous disinfectant and cleaning practices will continue, many times per day. We have also proactively implemented additions to our Code of Conduct, which are posted on property and available on our website HERE.

As part of the fabric of the Missoula area, we appreciate your support and loyalty and hope to see you at Southgate Mall soon!

Are you looking for work? I saw a few positions that need to be filled as I was poking around on the mall's website. There's part-time and full-time listings between Antie Anne's, Cinnabon, LensCrafters, and Pretzel Place. Plus, they're looking for help with Santa photo operations for the season.
