Bloomington shopping mall puts limits on minors


Bloomington -- A Bloomington shopping mall will require minors visiting the facility after 6 p.m. Friday and Saturdays to be escorted by a parent or guardian older than 21 years.


Eastland Mall general manager David Cate says he wants children under the age of 18 to shop at the mall. However, he is asking that for six out of the 72 hours of the shopping week they have their parents with them.


The policy, which begins Friday, is a response to shop owners and mall patrons who complain large numbers of unsupervised youths on weekends are causing trouble and making other shoppers feel unsafe.


Cate says shoppers will be warned of the policy on each day. Teenage mall employees are exempt from the policy.
