HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- With phase one of Gov. Greg Abbott's plan to reopen the state underway, more local malls are expanding their plans to open. Here's a list of them:

Simon Property Group

The group, which owns The Galleria, Houston Premium Outlets and Katy Mills Mall, announced they will open their doors. However, it's unclear what capacity if all stores inside will reopen.

This group owns a handful of malls throughout the area, including Deerbrook, Baybrook, The Woodlands Mall, Willowbrook and First Colony Mall.

All five malls reopened beginning May 5 with the following hours: Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. - 7 p.m., and Sundays from 12 p.m. - 6 p.m.
