The CEO, Mary Dillon, posted the following message on their website:
Things have been changing very quickly with the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in the U.S. We’ve been closely monitoring and making changes along the way, as we take very seriously our responsibility to help care for and protect our associates, our guests, their families and the communities we serve. Because of this, we will be taking an important next step to temporarily close our Ulta Beauty stores across the U.S. as of 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 19 until at least Tuesday, March 31.
If you’re shopping remotely, you can continue to visit us on our Ulta Beauty app or at ulta.com. We’re now offering free shipping for any purchase of $15 or more, and we continue to offer our 60 day return policy.
We understand the impact this will have on our guests and we want you to know how much we appreciate your flexibility and understanding. We also understand the impact this will have on our associates, who are at the heart of our company. To care for them during this unprecedented time, we will continue to pay our store and salon associates, as well as provide benefits for those who are currently enrolled.
I want to make sure that our guests and associates know there is nothing more important than our collective health and safety. We look forward to the time when we can re-open our stores, bring our associates back together, and invite you back in to Ulta Beauty. Until then, please take care of yourselves, your loved ones, and others who may need help.
