About half of all Uniqlo stores in China will temporarily close due to the coronavirus outbreak, according to Fast Retailing, the Japanese company that owns Uniqlo.
A company spokesperson says they have closed around 370 out of 750 stores in mainland China.
That includes all 17 of its outlets in Hubei province, which were the first to close, as of January 23.
We are monitoring the situation daily," the spokesperson said.
So far, the company has not closed any stores outside of mainland China. It says there is no planned reopening date for its China stores yet, as it continues to monitor the situation.
