Nordstrom and Foot Locker announced the temporary closure of their stores, effective Tuesday, in response to the novel coronavirus outbreak.

Details: Nordstrom said in a statement all of its U.S. and Canada stores would remain closed for two weeks and it withdrew its fiscal 2020 forecast that it issued on March 3 because it said it "did not include the impact of COVID-19." Foot Locker's North America stores will remain closed through March 31.
