On May 1st, state officials announced that non-restaurant retail businesses would be allowed to resume brick-and-mortar operations on Tuesday, May 12 with social distancing guidelines still in place. While wearing masks while shopping is not being mandated in the State of Ohio, many stores are requiring them and many are also limiting the number of customers allowed in their stores at once.

As Ohio moves toward a re-opening plan, we recommend that everyone stay safe and respectful and honor the changes in store policies whenever you may shop. The information below is current as of the time of publishing, but it’s recommended to call ahead to any store you visit to double check on hours of operation and shopping policies if you have questions.

Here are 31 local retailers that are re-opening on Tuesday, May 12:
