Nordstrom extends its temporary store closure for at least one week, through April 5. Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19, the Company will continue to assess the situation market by market and will provide further updates as appropriate. This closure impacts all stores, including Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, Trunk Club, Jeffrey, Nordstrom Local and Last Chance.
Since March 17, Nordstrom has provided ongoing pay and benefits to all store employees impacted by the temporary closures. The Company plans to offer store employees an additional week of pay through April 5, as well as benefits through April. The Company will require a smaller workforce to execute on the critical activities of the business during this time. As a result, it will be furloughing a portion of corporate employees starting April 5 for six weeks. Impacted corporate employees will continue to receive enrolled benefits. The Nordstrom Executive Leadership Group will forgo a part of their salary, and both Pete and Erik Nordstrom will decline their salary from April through September. Similarly, all members of the Company’s Board of Directors will forgo cash compensation for a six-month period.
