River Ridge Mall Eliminates 'Youth Escort' Policy

River Ridge Mall announced that it has eliminated its "Youth Escort  Policy", allowing local teens to enjoy the mall on Friday and Saturday  nights. 

The police was originally created in 2014 and was  enforced by a previous management company. It prohibited teens ages 18  and under from visiting the mall after 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday  nights, unless they were accompanied by a parent or legal guardian over  21. 

The previous management company said the policy was created  to curb disruptive behavior in the mall after they received numerous  complaints. 

River Ridge, which is now managed by CBRE, believes eliminating the policy can enable teen shoppers to enjoy the mall.

‚ÄúThis  policy sent an unwelcoming message to teens, and families with teens in  our community. We want the community to know that our teen shoppers are  welcome and very important to us," said Steve Halle, General Manager of  River Ridge.
