HAZELWOOD, Mo. (KMOV.com) – The St. Louis Outlet Mall will be amending its policy when it comes to minors being allowed in the mall without a parental escort.
The mall, formerly St. Louis Mills Mall, said their new Parental Escort Policy will go into effect on Friday. From 3 p.m. to closing on Friday and Saturday nights, children 16 years of age and younger who are visiting the mall must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is 21 years of age or older.
“The Parental Escort Policy has been a great success since we introduced it in 2006, so much so that our customers, tenants and community members have urged us to extend the hours and build on that success,” said St. Louis Outlet Mall’s general manager, David Reed. “We want to be pro-active in keeping our mall a family-oriented, quality shopping environment.”
Previously, the policy started at 6 p.m. Customers should be prepared to show valid photo identification such as a driver’s license, state I.D. card or military I.D. to mall security personnel if asked.
