Transitioning into 'safer at home' social distancing phase at SouthGlenn


A long list of businesses at Centennial's flagship shopping development appeared to remain closed on the first Monday they could open since Colorado's statewide stay-at-home order shuttered many kinds of businesses amid the pandemic.

At the Streets at SouthGlenn, Macy's, Floyd's 99 Barbershop and a handful of other businesses had reopened by May 11.

SouthGlenn's many restaurants still displayed signs saying they're open for take-out service. Even under the state's new “safer-at-home” rules, restaurants aren't expected to resume dine-in service until at least late May, according to Gov. Jared Polis.

Parry's Pizzeria, one of SouthGlenn's eateries, sits right next to the mall's common area, where three Centennial residents sat around a box of Parry's pizza.

Chris McGuire, 28, became friends with Lillia and Thomas Wagner after meeting them at the Bad Daddy's restaurant at SouthGlenn — and was the best man at their wedding, which also took place at that Bad Daddy's location. They hadn't seen McGuire for about a month during the statewide stay-at-home order.

Even with the stay-at-home order lifted for Arapahoe and other metro counties, the friends still are trying to adhere to social distancing guidelines. All three had face coverings with them.

“We're trying to keep it as tight as possible because we live with people who are more at risk,” said Lillia Wagner, 31. The Wagners and McGuire live with their parents.
