The main anchors at Westroads Mall — including J.C. Penney, Von Maur and Dick’s Sporting Goods — are closed to walk-in business, as is the mall’s food court, in response to the novel coronavirus.

Some stores in the mall remain open, however, and mall weekday hours have been reduced from noon to 7 p.m.

Westroads mall managers could not comment officially on mall activity, referring calls to the corporate office, Brookfield Properties in Chicago, which did not immediately return a phone message.

Some stores, such as Dick’s Sporting Goods, as of Thursday are making curbside pickup available.
