Another national retailer has announced a phased reopening of its stores.

Tailored Brands, whose banners include Men’s Wearhouse, Jos. A. Bank and K&G, expects to open approximately 300 stores by Memorial Day, starting with locations in Georgia and Texas this week. The retailer is also reviewing plans to reopen its Moores Clothing for Men stores in Canada.

New safety procedures have been implemented, including temperature checks for employees, the use of hand sanitizer and masks and social distancing protocols such as limiting the number of people in the store. To further enhance safety and meet customers’ needs, all three U.S. brands offer contactless payment. In addition, Men’s Wearhouse and Jos. A. Bank stores will also offer new curbside pickup.

“The safety and health of our employees, customers and communities remains our highest priority and will guide us through the reopening process,” stated Tailored Brands president and CEO Dinesh Lathi. “Our phased approach allows us to test, learn and iterate at each step along the way. Accordingly, we will measure customer traffic and response to determine the appropriate pace of reopening and staffing.”
