While Apple has just launched new connected watches and new tablets, the threat of the coronavirus still hangs over its shops, especially in certain areas where its circulation is active. The manufacturer is therefore trying to avoid the influx of people inside or outside some of its Apple Stores by requiring that an appointment be made (simple visit or assistance at the Genius Bar) to be able to enter the store. .
The Apple Stores affected by this measure are: Aix-en-Provence, Le Chesnay Parly 2, Lieusaint Carré Sénart, Marne-la-Vallée Val d’Europe, Marseille, Paris Champs-Élysées, Paris Marché Saint-Germain, Paris Opera, Puteaux La Défense, Rosny-Sous-Bois, Strasbourg.
These stores are generally open between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., and closed on Sundays. It is also possible to go there to pick up an order purchased online. Hours remain tight because, before the crisis, Apple Stores were generally open between 9:30 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monday to Saturday, and between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., Sunday.
Visitors should always wear masks (they are provided) and respect physical distancing. The number of people in the store is limited, and disinfections are carried out throughout the day. Finally, the Today at Apple sessions are still suspended and you have to be content with video tutorials on the manufacturer’s site.
