This week, Apple has announced that all of its retail stores in France have had to close due to increased restrictions in the country which came into effect this week. All 20 Apple Stores in France have closed as the country is in a third lockdown from a recent spike in cases of coronavirus.

This is roughly the same time as last year that, at the beginning of the pandemic when non-essential retail stores around the globe were forced to close and like last year, Apple hasn’t provided a date when its stores are due to open again.
