J Crew Group, a US-based omnichannel retailer of women's, men's and children's apparel and shoes, has announced that the company has re-opened its 171 stores, bringing the total re-opened locations to 315, representing 64 per cent of its total store fleet, following the temporary closure of all locations due to public health restrictions related to Covid-19. 
 
Based on a successful test re-opening of seven stores, J Crew Group began a phased re-opening of its nearly 500 stores in May. The company is taking a careful and deliberate approach to its store re-openings to ensure full implementation of appropriate safety protocols in line with CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines and government regulations to protect its customers, associates and local communities. 
 
With the re-openings, J Crew Group has reactivated the majority of its store associates from furlough. Due to strong business momentum and increased demand, the company has added approximately 400 positions at its Lynchburg, VA distribution centre. Job expansion at the distribution centre, which supports J Crew Group's e-commerce businesses, stemmed from continued online sales momentum that was increasing even before stores were closed during the pandemic.
