After reopening 12 Apple Stores in Canada last month in B.C., Alberta, Manitoba and Nova Scotia, Apple is now reopening its first retail stores in Ontario and Quebec.
Apple’s website shows the Conestoga store in Waterloo, Masonville in London and Bayshore in Ottawa will reopen tomorrow at 11AM local time (via MacRumors).
Meanwhile, we can tell you the Apple Place Ste-Foy store in Quebec City, Quebec, will reopen tomorrow at 10am local time as well, marking the first store in the province to do so.
“To ensure a clean, safe environment, we’re taking these extra measures,” explains Apple:
- Limiting store occupancy
- Face coverings (will be provided)
- Touchless temperature checks
- Social distancing
- Continuous deep cleaning
Stores will have “special hours” depending on location, but most are open from 11am to 7pm daily, and closing at 5pm on Sundays. Conestoga closes at 6pm on Saturday. The Place Ste-Foy store opens at 10am daily and closes at 6pm, except for Sunday when it closes at 5pm.
Apple closed all stores outside of Greater China back in mid-March to slow down the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, but now we see select stores are slowly reopening.
