The Chandler Fashion Center announced on its Facebook page May 31 that the mall would close "in an abundance of caution" for the day, and as of June 1 the mall was still closed. A recording reached when calling the mall stated the mall was closed "until further notice."

The closure came Sunday hours after stores and restaurants in Scottsdale were damaged, vandalized, and, in some cases, looted by crowds of people on Saturday evening. Protestors were out Saturday evening in downtown Phoenix and Scottsdale following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, last week.

Community Impact Newspaper reached out to a Chandler Fashion Center spokesperson for details on how long the closure might last, but did not immediately hear back.

Gov. Doug Ducey announced via social media May 31 that he was issuing a statewide emergency declaration in Arizona with a curfew in place beginning at 8 p.m. May 31 and effective for one week following several nights of protests over the death of George Floyd.

Chandler Recreation tweeted June 1 that in response to the curfew, Tumbleweed Recreation Center and Chandler Tennis Center will close at 8 p.m. The early closure hours will run through the weekend, according to the tweet.


The city of Chandler later announced that all city programs and facilities would close at 8 p.m. due to the state's weeklong curfew.

This includes Desert Oasis Aquatic Center and Dine in the Park in downtown Chandler.
