Retailers pitch in to combat coronavirus pandemic

Retailers are attempting to fill a void as hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout the U.S. experience shortages of personal protective equipment.

Gap (NYSE:GPS), HanesBrands (NYSE:HBI), Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) and Canada Goose (NYSE:GOOS) are all shifting production lines from making apparel to manufacturing face masks, scrubs and gowns, as well as utilizing connections in their supply chains.

Other companies like Target (NYSE:TGT), Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW) and Home Depot (NYSE:HD) are redirecting supply to frontline healthcare workers.
