Kohl's Department Store is closing all of its stores nationwide.
There are more than 1,000 Kohl's stores in the U.S., including one in Mount Pleasant and another in Burlington.
The stores will be open until 7 p.m. local time Thursday and then will close until at least the end of March.
Kohls.com and the Kohl's App will remain open for business while the brick-and-mortar locations are closed.
"We will support store associates with two calendar weeks of pay," Kohl’s CEO Michelle Gass said in a statement. "... and we look forward to reopening our stores soon to serve families across the country."

Walmart, Target and Dollar General have dedicated specific hours for the elderly and immunocompromised to be able to shop separately from the general public. Dollar General went the furthest, dedicating 8-9 a.m. every day to allow only those "most vulnerable" to COVID-19 to shop.
