Simon Property Group is closing its malls nationwide because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Coconut Point Mall will close most retail stores Wednesday at 7 p.m. and is expected to be closed until March 29.

Several retailers inside malls around the country had already announced their stores would be closing, including Macy’s, J.C. Penney, Gap and Sephora.

This closure does NOT include T.J. Maxx, Target or Total Wine. They will remain open until 8 p.m. Wednesday night and open as scheduled on Thursday.

Additionally, the restaurants at Coconut Point will remain open at this time.

The Waterside Shops in Naples also announced they’d be closing stores starting at 6 p.m. Wednesday until March 29. However, most of their full-service restaurants will remain open for the time being.

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated Edison Mall and Port Charlotte Town Center would be among the malls closing. They are no longer owned by Simon Property Group and were sold to Washington Prime Group in 2014
