Apple CEO Tim Cook in an interview on Thursday described his plan to open Apple stores in Australia, Austria and even the United States by the end of May.
Tim Cook to reopen Apple Stores soon
Prior to Apple’s earnings call on Thursday, CEO Tim Cook sat down for an interview with Bloomberg to reveal some of the company’s plans for the opening of its global retail chain. Specifically, Cook expects Apple’s only store in Austria and its twenty stores in Australia to open in one to two weeks.
He also plans to open a few stores in the United States during this period, but on a case-by-case basis. This coincides with what distribution manager Deirdre O’Brien said about the opening of “many” stores in May.
Cook also mentioned that the Apple Park campus in Cupertino would not try to reopen until early June.
The coronavirus epidemic prompted Apple to close its stores worldwide in March and has just started trying to reopen them. The first store outside of China is slated to open in South Korea on April 18.
