According to foreign media reports, affected by the new crown pneumonia epidemic, Apple announced on the 19th local time that it would temporarily close all 53 retail stores in California. This is also Apple’s largest store closure since the outbreak of the new crown pneumonia epidemic in the United States in March this year.
Apple on Friday announced the temporary closure of stores in the Los Angeles area, a plan that has now expanded to the San Francisco Bay Area. In addition, the plan will also include Apple’s retail stores at its Silicon Valley headquarters, which means Apple’s retail stores face the largest wave of chain closures since the outbreak. In the coming days, consumers will still be able to retrieve products they have repaired through the Apple Genius Bar as normal.
The current epidemic situation in the United States is not optimistic. Although Pfizer has developed a vaccine, it is not easy to completely control the development of the epidemic due to the images of many factors. As the epidemic continues to worsen, it is easy for Apple to temporarily close all stores in California, but when it will reopen is a difficult question.
