Ulta Beauty plans to reopen select stores, while expanding its new curbside pickup service, and increasing safety measures and processes.
Select stores reopening in this first phase are located throughout Arkansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah. A number of these reopened locations will offer hair services with heightened safety protocols as well.
To create safer shopping environments in store, Ulta Beauty worked with government and health guidance to inform safety and cleaning policies including face coverings for all associates, social distancing and salon service safety.
“Throughout the last few months, we have navigated the fluid dynamics of COVID-19 with the safety of our guests and associates at the heart of every decision we have made. That commitment to safety has guided our thoughtful, phased approach to reopening,” said Mary Dillon, CEO, Ulta Beauty. “In the last few weeks, we have introduced curbside pickup in more than 700 locations and this Monday, we will reopen approximately 180 stores in select states. Our focus has been on how to reopen safely, not just when, throughout our preparation and planning to ensure we are confident to welcome guests and associates back to Ulta Beauty.”
