apple reopens

Apple was one of the many businesses that were forced to take a hiatus due to the coronavirus. However, Apple stores in San Antonio and throughout Texas have reopened as of Wednesday, May 27, 2020.

In a statement, Apple explains that they 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,”

The two Apple stores in San Antonio, The Shops at La Cantera and North Star Mall, are both reopened and are now offering full in-store sales and service.

These Apple stores in Texas are among roughly 100 that are reopening this week across the nation. As Apple reopens in San Antonio, here’s a list of other Apple stores in Texas that have also reopened.

Deirdre O’Brien, head of retail at Apple, dutifully outlined the safety precautions being taken to protect health and safety at the company’s stores in a blog post. The aforementioned precautions include mandatory face coverings for employees and customers, temperature checks, limiting the store’s occupancy, and being vigilant about cleaning all surfaces and products.

O’Brien writes, “Our commitment is to only move forward with a reopening once we’re confident we can safely return to serving customers from our stores, …we look at every available piece of data — including local cases, near and long‑term trends, and guidance from national and local health officials. These are not decisions we rush into — and a store opening in no way means that we won’t take the preventative step of closing it again should local conditions warrant.”
