Each Apple retailer in California is closing because the state sees a massive surge in coronavirus circumstances, hospitalizations, and deaths.
Based on USA Today, all 53 shops across the state are “briefly closed.” Trying up my native San Francisco retailer on Apple’s retail location site I discovered that the Union Sq. retailer in the midst of the town’s buying district was now not open for in-person buying.
It isn’t simply California. All stores in Tennessee (there are 4 there), Utah (three), and Minnesota (4) are closed or or will shut within the coming week, forward of the Christmas vacation. Two shops in Oklahoma will even shutter, together with retailers in Anchorage, Alaska and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The back-and-forth could be complicated, particularly in locations like Arizona the place retailer closures stored seesawing based mostly on COVID surges. Now a Chandler, Arizona, location is listed as open however just for on-line order pickups.
To make certain, you must test on Apple’s website to see what the standing is earlier than heading to a bodily Apple retailer.
