Stores will offer Apple pickup to allow customers to buy online and pickup the product at a designated time, along with Genius Bar appointments by reservation. Some will also offer only curbside or storefront service, so you’ll need to check the local website for each location. Apple is also enforcing steps like social distancing and will use a full-time janitorial staff to clean the stores every hour. Products submitted to the Genius bar will be cleaned thoroughly at intake and pickup.
The 25 stores will open in seven states, according to 9to5Mac, including in California, Washington, Florida, Colorado, Hawaii and Oklahoma. It’s also set to open 12 stores across Canada and 10 in Italy.
