WEST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - The Westfarms Shopping Mall in West Hartford said on Tuesday that it will be open.

It had announced on Monday that it was closed.

The mall cited that the closure was "out of an abundance of caution."

"We continue to partner with local law enforcement and have determined to close the center out of an abundance of caution," said Amanda Sirica, who handled public relations for the mall. "We will keep the community informed of our reopening plans."

The mall would not provide the reason for the closure.

However, posts to various Facebook groups indicated that some kind of a protest may have been planned there for Monday afternoon.

Tuesday, the mall's hours were slated to be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
