Nebraska Furniture Mart in Omaha reopened Monday after closing March 27 because of concerns about the spread of the novel coronavirus. 

Nebraska Furniture Mart, the largest home furnishing store in North America, has reopened its Omaha and Dallas locations.

The Omaha store, located south of 72nd and Dodge Streets, reopened Monday after closing March 27 because of concerns about the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Customers were able to shop online during the closure.

Officials have implemented safety measures to address coronavirus-related issues.

Nebraska Furniture Mart has debuted a shorter logo — “NFM” — that has been showing up in advertisements and in-store displays.

The store has installed clear barriers at all cashier stations, put hand sanitizing stations throughout the store and is having workers clean carts after each use. Employees must wear masks, and a special “high-risk checkout” has been set up for people who are most vulnerable.

Workers will clean three to four times per day, focusing on “high touch” areas. Shoppers also can pick up items they have ordered online.

Employees also will monitor the number of people in the showrooms.

The company’s locations in Kansas and Iowa have not yet reopened, according to the company website.
