Bergdorf Goodman and the Neiman Marcus store in Hudson Yards closed today, joining the rapidly growing list of coronavirus-related store closings around the country.
The company said the stores will remain closed until further notice, while noting that bergdorfgoodman.com and neimanmarcus.com continue to operate.
On Monday, Nordstrom said it was closing all of its full-line department stores, Rack stores, Jeffrey and Trunk Club locations in the U.S. and Canada for two weeks starting March 17, and Saks Fifth Avenue said it was closing its Manhattan flagship and its store in Bala Cynwyd outside Philadelphia for up to two weeks.
It’s expected that many more store closings will be announced, including possibly by Neiman’s and Saks and other retail chains, later this week. Abercrombie & Fitch, J. Crew, Madewell, Vince, Lands’ End, Footlocker and Vineyard Vines are among the specialty chains that have announced mass temporary closings due to the coronavirus.
Major mall operators at this point have continued to operate their centers, though retail analysts have described some as “ghost towns.”
