The Gallatin Valley Mall closed their doors on Wednesday evening, and according to a press release on their website, they plan to be closed through March 31st. They hope to re-open again on April 1st.

Here's the what the Gallatin Valley Mall posted on their website on Wednesday:

Our top priority is protecting the health and safety of our tenants, customers, and employees. That is why Gallatin Valley Mall will close temporarily on March 18 at 6:00 PM through March 31. The current target re-opening date is April 1. We must do our part in acting socially responsible to help slow the spread of COVID-19 that is impacting locally as well as globally.

We will continue to monitor recommendations from the CDC, state and federal government, and industry leaders. Any further updates will be available on this page.

The shopping and entertainment our tenants provide has been an important part of this community since 1980. GVM brings people together and will continue to do so once we are past the current situation. That ability to attract people is what contributed to the decision to temporarily close our doors.

These are unprecedented times that require unprecedented actions. Once we get through this challenging time, we look forward to reopening our doors to the Bozeman community and beyond.
