The King of Prussia Mall opened late (at noon) but closed after just two hours as not all stores opened. Fellow Montgomery County attraction, the Willow Grove Park Mall, originally planned to open but never did while the Plymouth Meeting Mall remained closed. Best bet is to check before you go considering roads can be slippery.
