MEDFORD, Ore --- Friday, you might be able to open the door of your favorite retail store.

"We are excited to finally be back open." said Jeff Barber. He is the general manager of the Rogue Valley Mall. "Oh it's exciting, it's exciting." said Dave McCray. He is the co-owner of Cottage Quilts. 

On Thursday, NewsWatch 12's Leah Thompson confirmed the Rogue Valley Mall will be opening on Friday, May 15th. "So as people approach there will be lots of signage talking about health and safety." said Barber. He says not all stores will be open. Stores will need to decide individually when to open. "You know this was kind of a quick turnaround on this. Although not all of the stores will be open, most of them will." said Barber. 

Barber says all employees will be wearing a mask and practicing social distancing. He says shoppers are encouraged to do both of these as well. "It is a change, but it's at least something we can work with." said Barber. 

McCray and his team could not wait another day to reopen. They had a soft opening on Thursday. "There was a line at the store this morning. We opened the doors and people had to wait in their cars and stand aside." said McCray. 

The same rules apply inside this store as the mall. "I'm being called the Sargent of arms. I keep everyone social distancing." said McCray. 

McCray had to furlough all his staff about two months. Now he has hired everyone back and is even looking at bringing on a couple extra people. "We are pretty strong; we've made it through it. We are hoping that, that we are going to be able to stay open and do our thing and this thing gets behind us." said McCray.
