The MOA opened again for the first time since mid-March as shoppers where seen near the TCF Rotunda Wednesday, June 10, 2020, in Bloomington, MN.

Raekwon Martin of Bloomington drove to Mall of America on Wednesday morning to be part of its reopening after 11 weeks of being closed because of COVID-19 and then the unrest after George Floyd's death in Minneapolis police custody.

"I wanted to catch my shopping before everyone else," he said. "I'm used to coming here every week, but during the last few months, I have grown used to disappointment. It feels good to be here again and beat the wave."

With only about 150 of the mall's 500 stores open on Wednesday, many customers were likely to find favorite stores still closed. Macy's opened last week and Nordstrom opens Thursday, but Nickelodeon Universe, many food-court restaurants, Sea Life and CMX movie theaters remain closed. An increasing number of retailers are expected to open each day.
