Bell Tower retail stores, restaurants reopen as SWFL looks to ‘Experience More’

Following Gov. Ron DeSantis’ directive allowing additional Florida businesses to resume operations, Bell Tower, a newly renovated, open-air lifestyle shopping center in Southwest Florida, announced that retailers have begun to reopen for business.

The center will temporarily observe reduced hours of operation, which will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Bell Tower retailers will individually determine their reopening dates and hours. For an updated list of open retailers, including many still offering virtual shopping, shipping and pickup, please visit BellTowerFortMyers.com.

As Bell Tower reopen for shopping and dining, many of the center’s restaurants will continue to provide takeout and delivery services as well. Retail shops have opened at reduced occupancy, with several providing curbside pickup.

Bell Tower also continues its strong social media and community programs, such as the Pet Photo contest benefiting the Gulf Coast Humane Society. Plans are also in the works for a relaunch of Bell Tower’s popular monthly Yappy Hour with social distancing measures and other precautions in place once state and local authorities believe it is safe to do so.

“At Bell Tower, we are looking forward to our businesses reopening and having the opportunity to reconnect with our customers,” said Samantha Lillard, senior general manager at Bell Tower. “We know people are anxious to get out and at the same time feel safe. Facility cleanliness has always been a top priority, and we’ve taken additional precautions to safeguard the health of our visitors and employees in accordance with CDC guidelines.”
