Nike to Temporarily Close All U.S. Stores Due to Coronavirus Pandemic

Along with Canada, Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

As the coronavirus continues to spread across the globe, Nike has announced that it will be shutting down its U.S. stores for the time being. According to CNBC, the Swoosh brand will also close other outposts around the world including Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Western Europe and more.

The company released an official statement on March 15 saying:

“The well-being of our teammates and consumers is our top priority so we have decided to close our stores in multiple countries around the world including in the United States, Canada, Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand to limit the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). These closures will go into effect from Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 27. Customers can continue to shop on Nike.com and on our Nike apps.

We are taking additional steps in other Nike-managed facilities, including the option to work from home, staggered work schedules, social distancing and additional safety and cleaning steps to help protect and support our teammates.”

According to Nike, employees will receive full pay during the closures of the affected locations. Additionally, the label will keep its stores in South Korea, Japan, most of China and in “many other countries” open, but they will be closely monitored and examined daily.

Starting from March 16, all U.S., Canada, Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand stores will be closed until March 27. In other coronavirus-related news, did you hear that Glossier is also temporarily closing its retail locations?
