DTLR Villa, the Hanover-based clothing and shoe retailer, announced Tuesday that it’s closing all stores and its corporate office due to the novel coronavirus.
DTLR Villa CEO Glenn Gaynor and Co-CEO Scott Collins said in a statement that the “health and safety of our employees and customers is our top priority.” The stores and corporate office will close Wednesday through March 31.
Employees will continue to be paid and help serve customers online, the company said. Officials said “key steps” were taken to protect team members in the offices and distribution centers. They did not specify what steps.
Officials said they will continue to monitor coronavirus developments and “make decisions as needed.”
“This is a critical moment in our world, and things are unfolding at a rapid rate as it relates to the COVID-19,” the release said. “The strength of DTLR is our employees, our customers, and our community.”
