NEW YORK (WTVO/WEHT) — Macy’s and Men’s Wearhouse have announced they are temporarily closing all stores.
Men’s Wearhouse will be closed through the end of March. The company says employees will be paid throughout the period, and rental, custom and ship-to-store orders can be picked up as planned. Online shopping will not be affected, and the store says if your event is postponed, order details will be maintained so it can be reactivated with a phone call when the event is rescheduled. For cancelled events, Men’s Wearhouse is offering a gift card and an additional 20% discount for future use, or a full refund.
Macy’s stores are closing by the end of business today, March 17th, through March 31st, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Macy’s also owns Bloomingdale’s, Bluemercury, Macy’s Backstage, Bloomingdales the Outlet and Market by Macy’s stores.
According to Business Wire, chairman and CEO Jeff Gennette said, “The health and safety of our customers, colleagues and communities is our utmost priority. As a result of the recent COVID-19 developments, we have decided to temporarily close our stores. We will work with government and health officials to assess when we will reopen our stores and safely bring our colleagues back to work. During this closure, we will continue to serve our customers through our e-commerce sites.”
