Starting next week, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) will reopen retail stores in Alabama, Alaska, Idaho and South Carolina.
Apple has 271 stores in the United States, but only six in the reopening states.
Stores will have security measures in place, including temperature controls, social distancing requirements, limits on the number of customers inside and masks for employees.
Most Apple stores outside of China have been closed since March due to the coronavirus pandemic. The tech giant recently reopened a few locations in South Korea, Australia and Germany.
For now, retail stores will focus on repairing products rather than selling new products like the low-priced iPhone SE or the new MacBook and iPad models.
Despite the closure, Apple’s recent earnings report included record retail sales, supported by “off-the-shelf” online sales.
