Apple Reopening ~100 More Retail Stores in the U.S. This Week With Focus on Curbside Pickup and Storefront Service

Apple is planning to approximately 100 more retail stores in the United States this week in states that include California, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Texas, and more.

Apple first began reopening stores in the United States on May 11, and right around 25 stores have opened up at the current time. Many of the Apple Stores that will be reopening starting tomorrow will be limited to store pickups and repairs.

In the Bay Area where Apple is located, for example, stores that include Apple Burlingame, Apple Corte Madera, Apple Hillsdale, and Apple Union Square, the flagship San Francisco location, are reopening, but only for pickups and repairs.

Customers will not be allowed in the store, as local guidelines state that non-essential stores with a sidewalk storefront are only able to provide curbside pickup of orders at this time. Stores located in malls are not able to open up as of yet, so retail locations like Valley Fair will remain closed. In other areas, though, stores will be able to reopen for customers.

Apple in a statement to 9to5Mac said that it is committed to reopening its stores "in a very thoughtful manner."

This week we'll return to serving customers in many US locations. 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. Others will be open for walk-in customers and we encourage everyone to check their local store webpage for more information about hours at their preferred location. Customers can also visit apple.com for support by phone or chat.

We are committed to reopening our stores in a very thoughtful manner with the health and safety of our customers and teams as our top priority, and we look forward to seeing our customers again soon.

Apple Store employees across the United States have been preparing for the store openings over the course of the last week, and were trained on new procedures for handling products and interacting with customers over the weekend.

9to5Mac has a full list of the stores that are set to reopen this week, and details on whether customers are able to enter the store or if the location is limited to pickups.

It's not like the CoV situation has gotten any better. It's actually a lot worse (a lot, lot worse) than when the stores first closed.
This is false, The hospitalization and death rates are way down, which is the important thing.

Will storefront service & sales locations process in-store refunds? Wondering if the 14-day return period once stores reopen applies now.

I’m surprised they didn’t do curbside pickups the entire time like Best Buy did. I understand they were trying to protect their employees, which is noble. Just surprised more places didn’t try doing that.

Unfortunately, many of the Apple store locations are either located inside a mall or in very busy downtown/heavy trafficked areas where neither have the capability to support curbside pickup easily. Possibly in the latter, they could have allowed some sort of line-up, but again, it may not have been worth it given the locations.

Best Buy on the other hand is located typically where the setup is a strip mall with huge parking lots and the ability to drive-up curbside to load a vehicle with that all-important 75" TV or major appliance purchase.
