In a statement to their millions of customers, MECCA writes: ‘These are difficult and disorienting times we find ourselves in. We’ve tried to keep our doors open, operating with rigorous health and safety measures to protect our customers and our team.
‘However, based on the revised advice of the Government over the last few days and the challenges in adhering to the increasingly stringent social distancing measures, we have no choice but to temporarily close our stores from today, as nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our team, our customers and the community in general.
‘We anticipate being closed for four weeks until the end of April, but we will keep you up to date with changes. We want to thank our amazing teams for all their incredible efforts to support our customers and each other during these challenging times.’
MECCA are keeping their online store open in the meantime.
They add: ‘Whilst you may not be able to come in and visit us in person, Mecca.com.au remains open to help you look, and more importantly, feel your best. It provides free shipping, gift wrapping, e-gift cards, customer reviews and live chat…everything you need is only a click away.’
MECCA is the latest retail giant to close their doors due to coronavirus restrictions, following Myer, Cotton On, Country Road, Witchery and many more
