HAZELWOOD > Mall expands Saturday curfew St. Louis Outlet Mall is expanding the hours of its parental escort policy to starting at 3 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The revised policy, in which children under the age of 17 cannot shop after 3 p.m. without a parent or guardian over 21 years old, goes into effect this Friday. The previous escort policy at the mall, which was formerly known as St. Louis Mills, was for 6 p.m. on the weekends.
