The Village at Meridian started to reopen this weekend, but as of Monday morning – the majority of its stores remain closed.

The large shopping center at Fairview Ave. and Eagle Rd. in Meridian never fully closed after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Several restaurants remained open for takeout service, and a few stores, including the Boise Co-Op, continued serving customers.

Now, with the lifting of Gov. Brad Little’s Stay at Home order and the new stage one reopening in place, a few stores swung their doors back open.

We checked the center just before noon on Monday, and most stores remained closed, many still featuring St. Patrick’s Day sales events in store displays. Most featured signs saying they would remain closed.

But a few retailers in the village center started welcoming folks in again:

  • Buckle
  • Elle M
  • Antropolgie
  • Hope Ave.
  • Fleet Feet
  • Pro Image Sports
  • Urban Outfitters
  • Jensen Jewelers
  • Everere – pickup only, reopening May 11

Just a few big box stores are open along Eagle Rd.:

  • Boise Co-Op
  • Michael’s
  • Petco

Many, but not all, restaurants offer takeout and/or delivery services.

Signs around the center note customers should social distance, and most open stores limit the number of customers inside.

Centercal, which owns The Village, said it stepped up cleaning at the center, and the play areas remain closed. Crews reconfigured outdoor seating in common areas to provide more space between tables. New curbside pickup areas for restaurants have been added along Monarch Sky Ln. and E. Longwing Ln.
