110 retailers shut their doors in the US amid contagion fears

More than 110 retailers have now closed all their stores to limit the spread of the coronavirus as fears grow that all non-essential stores will shut their doors for weeks.

Department stores, fashion outlets, homeware stores and technology retailers are all pulling the shutters on their physical storefronts across the US as businesses try to limit public social interaction, according to a Forbes report.

Over 110 businesses have now shut, with Apple being the latest major retailer to announce the closure of its stores indefinitely.

Most of these stores say they plan to reopen by the end of March or early April, and in most cases employees are being compensated for the hours they’re missing.

On Friday 13 Patagonia, Glossier announced the closure of their stores indefinitely, with major fashion brands including Abercrombie & Fitch, Urban Outfitters and Nike following suit over the weekend.

Pharmacies and grocers are largely remaining open so shoppers can purchase essentials as swathes of the country prepare to for a period of social distancing and isolation.

This has put significant strain on online retailer like Amazon, which has been forced to hire 100,000 new staff members to meet demand and offer those working a $2 per hour pay rise.
