Apple Decides to Reclose Over 40 More Stores Around the United States

Due to the Corona Virus spiking again on June 26th, many big electronic stores like Apple had to announce that on Wednesday more of their stores will begin to reclose at least 30 more of their stores around the United States and miss out on a lot of profit. Which is not even counting the other 47 stores that they already have shut down due to the first wave of the Corona Virus. So that means that 77 stores are closed temporarily in the United States when they only have 270 stores in the United States.

Apple Inc is a National wide company that was all started by founder Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs who is an American magnate, investor, and also a shareholder of Pixar, that is a member of Walt Disney. Steve Jobs had sold his Volkswagen and Steve had sold his  Hewlett-Packard Scientific calculator that was worth at least 200 dollars back then just to raise money for their business. The Apple company was founded on August 1st, 1976 in Cupertino California. Apple Inc designs develop and sell electronics that could last for a long time. Apple is considered one of the four biggest technology companies with Google, Amazon, and Facebook.

The net worth for this business now is one trillion as of 202, so you can say that anyone would love to just sell a car and a calculator for this trillion-dollar business because it has been a major success. Apple usually makes most of its profit instore at busy places like malls and condensed shopping centers. Now they have to try to change that and make not all of their money but most of the money they make instore online. A spokesperson once said: “Due to current COVID-19 conditions in some of the communities we serve, we are temporarily closing stores in these areas. We take this step with an abundance of caution as we closely monitor the situation and we look forward to having our teams and customers back as soon as possible.” Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, and Oklahoma will more than likely be shut down first on Thursday. Some stores in Florida, Carolina, Texas, and Arizona have not even set a reopening date which means they probably have either not been making much profit online and do not plan on reopening the store anymore.

There will only be two stores open in Florida due to the 38,672 new cases of Corona Virus announced on Wednesday, June 24th, 2020. Apple plans on coming out with a new product, the iPhone 12 but it will not include any charger or earbuds. Which could be good for their business because if you do not own an Apple charger or earbuds you will basically be forced to buy the charger and everyone will need and want a pair of earbuds one day and neither of those products will be cheap and could possibly pull them out this hole of darkness for them.
