To protect the health and safety of consumers, our employees, and the communities where we operate, we are closing our North America brick and mortar retail stores on Monday, March 16. We expect these stores to remain closed through Friday, March 27.
Mountain Hardwear has been in business since 1993 and weathered many storms by keeping our focus on the well-being of consumers, employees and the larger community. In addition to the store closures, we have taken many steps to carry out the health and safety advice from health authorities around the world. Those have included enhanced cleaning protocols in all locations and our distribution centers, implementation of work from home plans to reduce health risks, facilitation of sick leave to encourage and enable employees to stay home and avoid spreading risk to others, and travel restrictions to limit potential transmission of COVID-19.
We encourage consumers seeking our products to visit our ecommerce site, at www.mountainhardwear.com. We will continue to deliver products our consumers need as long as it is safe to do so. Our administrative facilities also remain open, so that we can continue to provide customer support with the least amount of disruption possible.
President, Mountain Hardwear
