When will stores reopen in coronavirus pandemic? Not soon. Some are closed indefinitely.

Some of America's most iconic stores that temporarily shut down are now saying closures will last for many weeks – and possibly indefinitely.

The latest casualties from the coronavirus economic deluge include Apple, Express, Urban Outfitters and Guess? stores, all of which are closed "until further notice." Nike, meanwhile, says company stores "will remain temporarily closed in multiple countries around the world." 

L Brands, parent company of Victoria's Secret and Bath & Body Works, announced Friday it "is not currently able to predict the timing of store reopenings."

Nordstrom extended its two-week closures "for at least one week, through April 5," the department store chain said March 25. Kate Spade and Coach stores will stay closed an "additional two weeks" through April 10 while Men's Wearhouse locations are closed "until at least May 4."

More extensions are expected to be announced in the coming days as retailers listed late March and early April reopening dates.

USA TODAY reported that would be a stretch and the calendar may be well into spring, or even early summer before shoppers can stroll store aisles again. Coronavirus cases and deaths have been mounting and shelter-in-place orders are on the rise throughout the country.

Neil Saunders, managing director of the retail consultancy Global Data, recently told USA TODAY that stores' claims to reopen at the end of March or very early April were "very unrealistic."

"I think the earliest they will open is in late April or early May. The worst case is that large numbers of stores and malls could be closed until the summer," Saunders said. "It is hard to have any certainty right now."
