Irvine Co. retail centers remain open for essential needs

We want to assure you that our retail centers remain open for essential needs and services. Grocery stores, pharmacies, healthcare providers, gas stations, banks, and restaurants offering drive-thru and pick-up service are working hard to serve our community. Many stores have adjusted their regular business hours to allow time for additional cleaning, disinfecting, and restocking items. Additionally, some stores are offering special shopping times for seniors 65+ and those with special medical conditions.

We would like to thank all of the hardworking and dedicated people who keep these businesses open during this challenging time. As a company, we continue to monitor Federal, State, and local health regulations. Our top priority remains the health and safety of you, your family, and our community.

Butch Knerr is president of Irvine Company Retail Properties.
