Tailored Brands has shared its plans for a phased reopening of Men’s Wearhouse, Jos. A. Bank, and K&G stores. The company expects to open approximately 300 stores by Memorial Day, with the first stores opening in Georgia and Texas this week. In addition, the company is currently 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, and Men’s Wearhouse and Jos. A. Bank stores will also offer new curbside pickup.

“We are pleased to bring our store teams safely back to work and to be there for our customers,” said Dinesh Lathi, president and CEO of Tailored Brands. “The safety and health of our employees, customers and communities remains our highest priority and will guide us through the reopening process. 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.”

The company will continue to follow government guidelines to determine when it’s appropriate to reopen stores in additional markets across the U.S. as well as its Moores Clothing for Men stores in Canada.
