The Mall at Millenia via Facebook
Planning to wait out the storm while browsing some high fashion? You might have to think again: A handful of Orlando's biggest malls are closing their doors in preparation for the arrival of Hurricane Irma.
For the latest on your favorite shopping destination, be sure to check their social media accounts or website before heading out – it might save you a very rainy drive.
As of this article's writing, The Mall at Millenia
has announced it will be closed Saturday, Sunday and Monday; and Waterford Lakes Town Center
has announced it will be closed Saturday and Sunday. In addition, Orlando's Simon Outlets – including The Florida Mall
, Orlando International Premium Outlets
, Orlando Outlet Marketplace
and Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets
– will also be closed Saturday and Sunday.
But let's be honest – what was the wind rating on that knit Versace blouse, anyway?
Other popular malls will remain open for the weekend. Neither the Orlando Fashion Square, Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores, Pointe Orlando, or The Magic Mall have made any announcements about temporary closure.
