The mall where a masked, rifle-wielding gunman killed two people and injured a third will reopen Friday morning at 9 a.m.
Outside the Clackamas Town Center, a sign reads, "Forever in our hearts 12/11/12."
Many are still dealing with the shooting that took place on Tuesday, but store owners and managers are trying to get back to a sense of normalcy.
"It was a kind of eerie, a little quiet but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. There wasn't too many people but it was somber in there," said Mario Collaso who works at Nic Station, a kiosk in the mall.
The owner of Fabulicious Cupcakes told Fox 12 that one of her workers quit because she didn't want to go back to the mall.
Others who plan to return are a bit hesitant.
"I don't really want to but I kind of have to, it's a job and I need money," said Collaso.
Investigators said Jacob Roberts rushed into the Clackamas Town Center mall's food court and opened fire Tuesday around 3:30 p.m. After killing Steve Forsyth and Cindy Yuille, and wounding 15-year-old Kristina Shevchenko, Roberts shot and killed himself near JC Penney's.
The mall has been closed since the shooting. Those who were in the mall when the shooting happened will receive instructions later Thursday on how they can track down the items they may have left behind at the mall.
As the community continues to mourn the victims, mall organizers said they're planning a candlelight vigil set for Friday, Dec. 14 at 7 p.m. at the mall entrance near the Starbucks.
