Supreme has closed its stores temporarily to help fight the spread of COVID-19 and has moved this week's release to online only.
In an email sent out to people for sign-up for in-store releases weekly, the brand stated:
"To ensure the safety of our customers and staff, this week’s release will only be available online as our stores will be closed temporarily. Weekly registrations will be suspended until further notice as we continue to monitor the spread of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Thank you and please be safe.
For more information on safety and how to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, we encourage you to visit the CDC website."
Their website also features a header now that reads:
"Due to the spread of COVID-19, we have taken measures to ensure public health and safety of our customers and staff. These include temporarily closing our stores in the U.S., U.K. and France, and enacting company-wide policies to safeguard our employees, products and supply chain. The online store will remain open. Next week's release will be online only."
Supreme joins a growing list of retailers, including Nike, that have shuttered their doors in an effort to fight the spread of the pandemic as well as for the safety and well being of their employees and customers.
