Disney plans to close 60 stores across North America by the end of 2021 to focus on e-commerce, the company announced.

The closures will affect 20% of Disney’s 300 global retail stores before it looks at more potential closures, especially in Europe, according to CNBC. Japan and China will not be affected. Disney also acknowledged that this change would lead to layoffs but declined to say how many people will be impacted. The company joins hundreds of other closures announced for 2021.

At least 38 of the closures are planned by March 23, according to Disney’s store locator.

“The global pandemic has changed what consumers expect from a retailer. We now plan to create a more flexible, interconnected e-commerce experience that gives consumers easy access to unique, high-quality products across all our franchises,” president of consumer products, games, and publishing Stephanie Young said.

Disney will focus on improving its e-commerce offerings, including the ShopDisney website and app, and offer more direct-to-consumer adult apparel, collectibles, and home goods.
