Coronavirus store closings, changing hours: Retailers closing early

Retailers across the nation are trimming store hours to focus on deep cleanings and to restock store shelves. Some are closing stores, too.

Apple announced it will close all its retail stores outside Greater China until March 27 because of  the coronavirus outbreak. Urban Outfitters also announced all of its stores worldwide would be closed at least until March 28. Nike is making a similar move, temporarily closing all of its stores in the U.S. for 12 days, the company said in a statement.

Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, announced late Saturday that starting Sunday it was trimming hours at 24-hour stores and other locations. The temporary hours are 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Other Walmart stores also will have reduced hours.
