In a dramatic action helping to limit the spread of the virus, Nordstrom will temporarily close all of its stores, including Nordstrom full-line department stores, Nordstrom Rack, Trunk Club clubhouses and Jeffrey in the U.S. and Canada for two weeks, effective March 17.

‘We’re taking decisive actions across the business to help protect employees, customers and others in the communities we serve,’ said Nordstrom. “The health and safety of our customers and employees remain our top priority as we continue to make decisions during this rapidly evolving situation.”

Nordstrom will provide pay and benefits for its store employees during this period. Nordstrom continues to serve customers through its online business, which made up one-third of sales in 2019. Through its apps and online, the company operates Nordstrom.com, Nordstromrack.com, HauteLook.com and TrunkClub.com–including digital styling, online order pickup and curb side services at its full-line stores.
