TK Maxx, owned by TJX Companies in the US, has already closed its stores in Germany, Poland, Austria and The Netherlands.

A brief statement appears on their websites, saying: “We’re sorry but currently all our stores are closed in the UK. We hope to reopen soon.”

The closure comes after other chains like Dr Martens and IKEA announced they were closing in the wake of coronavirus.

Other stores are expected to follow suit following the recent government advice.
