Michael Steeber, 9to5Mac:
Every Apple Store in the United States is open for the first time in nearly a year. It was 353 days ago — March 13, 2020 — that Apple closed all of its retail stores outside of Greater China.
While some Apple Stores offer in-store shopping appointments and others can accept Express pickup of online orders only, all 270 US locations are now open in some capacity as of March 1, 2021. Apple Stores in Texas around Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio were the last to reopen today.
Dare I hope that this is the last of these Apple Store forced closures?
Add to this news today’s rollout of the new Johnson & Johnson one-shot-and-you’re-done vaccine, and I feel like this never-ending nightmare might actually be coming to a close.
