Community Blood Center issues urgent call for healthy donors as blood supply remains at dangerously low levels

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (July 29, 2020) – Community Blood Center (CBC) has issued an urgent call for healthy blood donors. The need for blood has rebounded to pre-COVID-19 levels, but the blood supply remains dangerously low. Legends Outlets is stepping up to host an urgent blood drive on Friday, Aug. 14, and is inviting community members to participate.

“The blood supply is a critical part of our healthcare system. It is imperative for healthy individuals to come in and donate blood so that it’s available to those in need,” said Kim Peck, Senior Executive Director of Community Blood Center. “At this unprecedented time, this is one thing you can do to help someone who desperately needs it.”

Community members are encouraged to make an appointment to donate at the upcoming Legends Outlets Community Blood Drive on Friday, Aug. 14, from 12 to 6 p.m. Appointments are strongly recommended. All presenting donors will receive either a Kansas City Royals t-shirt or rally towel, which they will select online after the blood drive.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

Last Update: 7/28/20

  • What are your shopping hours?

Legends Outlets will be open Monday – Saturday, 11:00 AM – 7:00 PM and Sunday, 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM until further notice. Some store hours may vary, so we encourage you to check prior to your trip.

 

  • Are masks required at the Center?

Yes. The state of Kansas has issued an Executive Order that requires everyone to wear a mask in indoor and outdoor public spaces where you are unable to maintain a 6-foot distance from others. There are a few exemptions to this requirement, including children under 5, individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing and individuals who have a condition that would prevent them from being able to wear a mask. If you happen to forget yours at home, we do have disposable masks available in the Security Office, or you can purchase one from DEMDACO or Old Navy if they’re in stock.

To review the full scope of the Kansas Executive Order, click HERE.  To review the Wyandotte County Order, click HERE.

 

  • What is your Center doing to keep guests and employees safe?

      Legends Outlets has implemented many new safety measures which include the addition of 20 hand sanitizer stations, posted social distancing reminders throughout the Center as well as enhanced cleaning practices and sanitation equipment.  For a full list of the steps we are taking for employee, merchant and guest safety, click here

 

  • Are all the stores open?

The majority of stores are now open. For the most current list, click herePlease note that some businesses have varying operating hours. We recommend checking a retailer’s website or calling prior to your arrival.

 

  • Is social distancing still required?

            Yes. The Wyandotte County Health Department requires everyone to socially distance themselves by 6’ from anyone outside of their household.  Common area seating and sales floors have been rearranged to help accommodate this mandate. 

 

  • What can I expect during my shopping experience?

            Each experience may be a little different depending on what store you’re in.  For example: If there are many people out shopping, you might have to wait in line before entering a store. Dressing rooms may be temporarily closed and there could be restrictions on what merchandise you’re able to try on.  Stores will also look a little different as many have adjusted layouts so your shopping experience is as safe and comfortable as possible.

 

  • Why has some of the seating in The Lawn been removed?

To help us limit and maintain the number of common area touchpoints.

 

  • Are the gloves you provide employees with latex-free?

Yes! Legends Outlets’ staff and janitorial partners only use latex-free, FDA approved gloves.

 

  • Are wheelchairs and strollers still available for guest use?

These amenities, in addition to our water fountains and kiddie rides will not be available for the time being.

 

  • I have been stuck at home with my teenagers for far too long; can I drop them off to shop for a while?

As much as we sympathize with your need for some in-home social distancing, our Parental Escort Policy is in effect at all times to further help our efforts in providing a safe, clean, and enjoyable experience for all.

Re-opening plans include added safety & social distancing measures

With the state of Kansas on the path to recovery, Legends Outlets is working on plans to safely reopen the shopping center. The health and safety of its retailers, guests and employees remains to be the top priority, and the center will implement many new social distancing and community safety measures recommended by the Wyandotte County Health Department.

 

During the mandatory stay at home order, Legends Outlets remained focused on deep sanitization throughout the center. They introduced a hospital-grade touchless sanitation machine to increase cleanliness and productivity to common areas, restrooms and corridors. They also used this time to make updates and improvements around the center, such as:

 

• Sandblasting and repainting benches, stairwells, poles, and railings
• Power washing all trellises and awnings
• Enhancing landscaping
• Installing new LED lights in the parking garage
• Repairing concrete around the center

 

As expected, the shopping experience will be a bit different for guests the next time they visit. As Legends Outlets prepares to reopen the center to meet the needs of the community, they are taking the following steps to place health and safety above all else:

 

• Working with the security team to control access and flow of traffic through the center and to pinpoint high areas of concentration throughout the center and parking lots

• Encouraging social distancing throughout the center; using signage and decals to help customers practice social distancing

• Requiring retailers and restaurants to reconfigure their spaces to accommodate the 6-foot social distancing recommendations

• Restructuring common areas to safely provide comfort and enjoyment with proper social distancing

• Installing no-touch step and pulls on all restroom doors

• Closing levels two and three of the parking garages; closing the escalators and elevators

• Turning off drinking fountains

• Installing hand sanitizer stations throughout the center to ensure employees and guests have access as needed

• Providing masks and gloves for employees

• Offering free onsite temperature checks, disposable masks and sanitizer wipes for guests upon request

 

The center has also implemented an aggressive disinfecting regimen on top of its already rigorous cleaning schedule. Housekeeping and security partners have added additional hours and equipment for cleaning and sanitizing throughout the day as well as after-hours, with a focus on high-touch points and high-traffic surfaces.

 

Several stores at Legends Outlets will be re-opening as early as May 18. Some retailers will be operating under alternate hours or may be opening at a later date, and others are working on plans that will allow shoppers to place their order over the phone and pick up in-store. Legends Outlets will continue to update its website with details as those plans become finalized. Essential businesses including restaurants remain open for curbside pickup, carryout and delivery services only. Please click here, or contact individual restaurants for more information. A full list of restaurants and phone numbers can be found here.
