Nike Closes Retail Locations Worldwide Amid COVID-19 Precautions

Nike has officially closed all of its U.S. retail locations in an effort to protect employees and customers from contracting and spreading COVID-19. Furthermore, Canadian, Western European, Australian, New Zealand, and other worldwide Nike retailers are also closing their doors. The closures are tentatively set to continue until March 27th.

These closures come fresh off the heels of footwear shipment delays from Nike, Jordan Brand, and their affiliates as the virus continues to compromise worldwide health and safety.

All Nike employees will be compensated by the company during the closures.

Regarding the closures, the brand sent the following message:

“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 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.

Our Nike-owned stores in South Korea, Japan, most of China and in many other countries are currently open and will continue their normal operations.”
