Sweaty Betty closes all stores until the end of March
Upmarket sportswear retailer, Sweaty Betty announced it is closing all its retail stores and postponing events from 16-30 March due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
The sportswear retailer highlighted that all store teams will continue to be paid during the break.
The decision comes after a number of fashion retailers including Selfridges, Primark, Nike, Urban Outfitters and others have closed down their stores with the aim of protecting staff and limiting the spread of the virus.
On Tuesday, Sweaty Betty shared a post on Instagram saying: “After careful consideration we feel it is in the best interest of our community to temporarily close our stores and postpone our store events for the next two weeks. Please rest assured our store teams will be given paid time off during this period. Our online shop will be working hard to serve you 24/7 and we have just switched on free delivery no minimum spend, starting today.”
