According to Nike, the 38% drop is caused by the store closure during the pandemic. Still, the sales in China grew by 8%, marking the sixth consecutive year of increase (100% of its stores are open in China).

As of yesterday, 90% of Nike-owned stores are open globally; in America alone, 85% are functional. After being hit by the pandemic, Nike secured $2 billion in the credit facility, which adds to the already existing $2 billion meant to ensure flexibility and liquidity.
