“This is a momentous occasion and we certainly don’t want our dedicated associates to miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” Dorothy Lane Market CEO Norman Mayne said.

The stores will be closed from approximately 2:50 p.m. until 3:20 p.m. but will practice normal business hours for the remainder of the day.

Each location’s store director may slightly adjust the time of the 30-minute closer, the spokesperson said.

“We are thrilled to be able to view this natural phenomenon together! We appreciate our customers’ understanding for the short time we will be closed,” DLM President Calvin Mayne said.
