Apple is reportedly set to launch approximately100 new outlets only in the U.S. in the coming days, a spokeswoman of the organization revealed
In total, approximately 130 out of 271 US Apple Stores will be operational by the end of the week. Overall, the tech giant runs approximately 510 shops worldwide, all of which will be re-opened over the next couple of weeks.
Apple ‘s store openings are being closely observed as both the main market factor for Apple and a leading retail industry health predictor, where Apple’s sites also anchor significant shopping centers or districts.
Apple’s Brilliant Shop, which helps consumers to get service and help for defective iPhones and other Apple items, has been based on the stores in the United States that have reopened so far. Few retailers will be accessible for walk-in clients, re-opening next week.
“This week we’ll return to serving customers in many US locations,” an Apple representative said in a statement. “For customer safety and convenience, most stores will offer curbside or storefront service only, where we provide online order pick-up and Genius Bar appointments.”
“In every store, we’re focused on limiting occupancy and giving everybody lots of room, and renewing our focus on one‑on‑one, personalized service at the Genius Bar and throughout the store,” O’Brien said in the letter. She also wrote that face masks will be provided to customers at the door, that staff will perform regular “enhanced deep cleanings,” and that the company will screen employees for symptoms of coronavirus.
In Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin, Apple will reopen stores next week.
