Eastern Europe has been impacted by the war and the fact that all sales in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine were paused at the time of the invasion. In August stores in Russia were reopened to sell off the remaining stock as part of the winding down of the Russian operations. As the goods sold out, the stores were closed permanently. The stores in Belarus were also reopened during the autumn and sold off their stock. The last stores in Russia and Belarus closed on 30 November.
