As the Baltimore area deals with the loss of power and closed and flooded roads in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, some stores and businesses plan to reopen Tuesday but others remain closed.
The Mall in Columbia and
Merritt Athletic Club said it planned to open all nine Baltimore area locations at noon.
And the Maryland Live! Casino has resumed normal hours, said Carmen E. Gonzales, a spokeswoman for the casino at Arundel Mills. Arundel Mills mall will reopen at noon Tuesday.
Schools across the state were closed Tuesday. Decisions had not been announced as of Tuesday morning about when they would reopen. One school system, Anne Arundel, said that it was assessing any damage or power outages at its buildings and would not announce a decision until after that assessment was complete.
Because of the severity of the storm in the mid-Atlantic, Wells Fargo said it would waive or credit some fees from Monday through Thursday. The lender said it would waive late fees on credit cards and consumer and small business loans, such as home equity, auto and student loans. The bank will also waive fees charged for using another bank's ATMs.
