Apple had previously announced that they would be temporarily closing down its physical shops up until the 27th of March. However, offered the intensity of the coronavirus break out, the business canceled this target date and also released on its site that all its physical stores will be closed up until more notification.
Currently, according to a report from 9to5Mac, it seems that Apple is now preparing to resume a few of its shops in April. This will be performed in a staggered manner, where not all stores will be returned, as well as it will indeed also be significantly based upon the existing problems to guarantee optimal safety for both its workers along with consumers that see their stores.
This is according to a memo written by Apple’s SVP of Retail + People Deirdre O’Brien and obtained by the publication. According to the memo (in part), O’Brien is telling staff, “For all of our Retail stores outside of Greater China, we will reopen our stores on a staggered basis. At this time, we anticipate some stores may be able to open in the first half of April depending on the conditions in their community.”
Precisely which stores will undoubtedly be opened up remains to be seen, however, if you’re one of the unlucky consumers who did not manage to gather their repaired Apple item in time before the shops shut. Ideally, you’ll be able to get it back in the coming weeks.
