One of the few remaining malls still open in Minnesota is set to close its doors on Friday.

Rosedale Center in Roseville said it will close its doors at 5 p.m. Friday until at least Apr. 10.

It follows Gov. Tim Walz's decision to impose a "Stay at Home" order effective 11:59 p.m. on Friday, which will place additional restrictions on movement during the COVID-19 crisis.

Rosedale has remained open while many other major Twin Cities malls have closed.

The Mall of America closed its doors on Wednesday, Mar. 18, the same day that schools closed in Minnesota, with the likes of Southdale, Albertville Premium Outlets, and the Twin Cities Outlet Mall following suit shortly after.

Since then, the likes of Ridgedale Center, Maplewood Mall, and Eden Prairie Center have also since closed. The Shoppes at Arbor Lake in Maple Grove remains open, but most retailers have shut their doors and the few that remain open are offering curbside pickup.

At Rosedale, exterior facing restaurants with carryout and/or delivery services can continue to operate, but the mall itself will close.

"The safety of our shoppers and employees is our top priority and by closing Rosedale Center we are complying with governmental and health agency requests, which are in the best interest of public health and safety during these uncertain times," a statement from the mall read.

Rosedale Center General Manager Lisa Crain added: "Rosedale Center is offering local social service organizations and governmental agencies its parking lots and enclosed assets to serve as potential distribution centers for emergency medical supplies, food distribution and storage, and other services that may be required by communities in need."
