Michael Hill shops closed
Michael Hill jewellery outlets have closed their doors indefinitely.
300 shops globally, 165 in Australia, three of those in Greater Hobart and one in Launceston.
Coronavirus of course is the reason, not just because of the massive hit to its trade as discretionary purchases plummet generally.
The company has also decided the nature of its business is at odds with adhering to strict social distancing guidelines of four square metres in enclosed spaces.
As for many affected traders at the moment, Michael Hill's online trading becomes even more important.
