The Cupertino company reopened several of its Madrid stores a few hours ago to make deliveries, use repair services and all this by appointment. Apple stores in Spain were halfway between open and fully closed. As the weeks passed, most of the stores here took another step that only allowed access to them by appointment, to pick up a product or to repair a device by appointment.
This damn COVID-19 pandemic forced Apple to take action and finally some of the stores in Madrid are now open again but with limitations. In them you cannot enter to see the products as Apple users and non-users do on a regular basis. In this case, the stores are only and exclusively open for previous appointments. As Apple explains in each of them:
The store is open to collect products purchased online and to receive technical support by appointment. At the moment, we are unable to serve walk-in customers. We hope to return to normal operations as soon as possible.
AAt least one hour we have the Sol, Gran Plaza 2, Parquesur stores and others open with restricted hours and prior appointment. It is important to call or confirm the store hours on the Apple website to see if we can enter or not. It is also important to be clear that the less we move, the sooner we will return to "normality" so be prudent and above all aware of what we are at stake. In short, the main thing now is to stabilize ourselves again and that is that the second wave of coronavirus seems to have strongly affected our country.
