In addition to buybuy BABY and Harmon Face Values stores, which remain open to serve essential infant, health and personal care needs, this means around 50% of the Company's total store fleet is expected to be open by June 13.

The company expects around half of its stores across its retail banners to remain closed to the public through June 13, 2020. It will also extend the furlough of the majority of store associates and a portion of corporate associates until at least June 13, 2020.

As stores re-open during this period, the company expects to bring about 11,000 associates back from furlough.

The company noted that it will continue to pay 100% of the cost of healthcare premiums for all furloughed associates who currently participate in the company's health plan, until further notice.
