Apple is reopening some of its official stores, Apple Stores, in several countries and Brazil has appeared on the most recent list. According to the apple company, both the store in São Paulo and the one in Rio de Janeiro will start operating again next Wednesday (7).
The stores in Brazil followed the same temporary closure that happened in several places, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, caused by the new coronavirus. Since then, many Apple Stores have been reopened, as is the case with 233 of the 271 stores in the United States, all in mainland China and 17 of the 22 in Australia.
The only two Apple stores that exist in Brazil will reopen on the same day as two others in Mexico, both in the capital. In the same period as the reopening, others are closing, mainly due to the second wave of contagion.
