“Walking through the Marina District section of town here yesterday, I tried to find the local Apple Store, thinking I could determine why my MacBook Pro was having battery issues,” Daniel Terdiman reports for CNET. “The only problem? The store, which I’ve been to many times, was curiously nowhere to be found.”
“Today, it all makes sense. According to a news story making the rounds, the store I was trying to find, on Chestnut Street, and possibly at least two others around the country, are temporarily closed,” Terdiman reports. “In the case of this store, it seems that the facade had been blacked out in such a way that I didn’t even see the familiar glass front.”
Terdiman reports, “others stores definitely are closed. Apple’s Walnut Creek, Calif. store is shut, according to its Web page. There, a note greets potential visitors: “We’re closed September 26 – October 3.” A call to that outlet produced the same wording about why it’s closed — that it’s undergoing ‘minor update’ — as that of the Chestnut Street location in San Francisco, with the only difference being that it says that its doors will open again on October 4.””
