West Acres shopping center closed at 4 p.m. due to blizzardFARGO – The West Acres Regional Shopping Center closed at 4 p.m. today because of deteriorating weather conditions from the blizzard.
Although West Acres opened at noon, managers decided to close the mall for the safety of customers and employees, said Kirk Schroeder, who is in charge of guest services at the mall.
“Right away, there was quite a few people,” he said. But as the afternoon progressed, and visibility and road conditions deteriorated, “they started coming in slower and slower.”
