Nine of its stores reopened on Friday and 15 opened earlier.

Its store in Karrinyup, WA, will reopen on May 30.

The department store chain shut down all its stores on March 29 as part of the coronavirus crisis, standing down 10,000 employees.

Myer said protective measures such as hand sanitiser stations and contactless payments would be in place.
