Paris: While Apple Stores have been generally returning to normal worldwide, Apple has decided to shut down its stores in the country as France enters its third Covid-19 lockdown phase
Apple has now shut all 20 stores in France, Apple Insider reported on Friday.
"We will soon close temporarily," said a notice on the Apple Opera Paris's site (in translation).
"For the moment, we are open for the collection of current online orders, and assistance at the Genius Bar for appointments already scheduled before Saturday, April 3," it added.
According to Mac Generation, the closure is until further notice. This closure includes ones in French city centers, which had previously been able to continue operating in January's lockdown.
The move to close retail locations comes in the week that France has closed its schools for at least three weeks. Certain lockdown measures were introduced across the country in March, but now all non-essential stores are to shut from Saturday, April 3.
