Destiny USA, a prominent shopping mall, and Wegmans stores across New York will temporarily close their doors on April 8 to allow employees to witness the total solar eclipse, marking a special pause for a celestial phenomenon.


The mall will shut down for 30 minutes from 3:00 to 3:30 p.m., aiming to offer its staff a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to enjoy the eclipse.

Both Destiny USA and Wegmans are encouraging their customers to plan their shopping around the eclipse and return after the brief closure to continue their activities. The mall has advised that individual store hours may vary during the day of the eclipse and recommends checking their website for specific details.
