Signs posted outside the Hudson’s Bay department store in Red Deer indicate the outlet is temporarily closed.
The company made the decision Tuesday to close all stores for two weeks, after which time the decision will be reassessed.
“The health and well-being of our associates, customers and communities is our top priority, and remains at the forefront as we make decisions in this rapidly-evolving situation,” says company president Iain Narin.
“This is the right thing to do as we all work together to stay healthy and limit the spread of the virus.”
During this closure, store associates will be paid for all scheduled shifts that were planned for the two weeks.
The company is working toward solutions, such as curbside pick up for customers who have placed “buy online pick up in store” orders, as well as those who have ordered major home fashions.
Customers can continue to shop online on thebay.com.
