Months after the coronavirus pandemic fouled up the long-awaited debut of East Rutherford’s American Dream mall, more than 80 retailers and a number of entertainment venues there will open their doors Thursday, according to NJ.com.

The luxury retail section of the mall remains closed. Retailers opening over the next few days include Best Buy, Uniqlo, Foot Locker and Old Navy. Entertainment venues opening include the Nickelodeon Universe theme park and the Dreamworks Water Park.

Some of those entertainment venues opened between fall 2019 and early 2020, but the entire 3.3-million-square-foot mall shuttered once the pandemic hit. It was a major blow for the already-delayed mall. [NJ.com] — Dennis Lynch
