According to the post, fans can still buy from the store on October 31 and that the store will still handle any orders that have been placed on the site on their final day.
In case you wish to return an item and get a refund, you can still do so even when the store has closed by contacting them on the email they have provided on their website--but the item viable for return should be processed 30 days after the initial purchase.
Although ATLUS did not provide any details on why they are closing their online store, they are open to saying that it will be temporary and that the team is working on bringing better ATLUS stuff for its fans.
However, they also did not provide any tentative date or time period as to when the hiatus will end; but they did say that a date will be announced soon.

A new Persona 5 game is coming, which will be called Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, which will be a warriors/Musou style gaming and will star familiar faces from the main Persona 5 game, The Phantom Thieves.
