All Apple Stores outside of Greater China are closing until March 27th

All Apple Stores outside of Greater China are closing until March 27thApple CEO Tim Cook sent out a statement in the early hours of Saturday morning detailing Apple's worldwide response to COVID-19. Among the steps taken is news that the company will close its retail stores worldwide until March 27th. The only exception is Greater China, which includes Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, where the company yesterday reopened stores that had closed on February 2nd. Stores already closed in Italy and Spain due to the pandemic will remain closed.

On Friday morning Apple announced its spring WWDC developer event would go online-only, and Cook said that "In all of our offices, we are moving to flexible work arrangements worldwide outside of Greater China." For the affected workers, "All of our hourly workers will continue to receive pay in alignment with business as usual operations. We have expanded our leave policies to accommodate personal or family health circumstances created by COVID-19 — including recovering from an illness, caring for a sick loved one, mandatory quarantining, or childcare challenges due to school closures."

As far as why the company would take drastic steps, Cook cited lessons learned as coronavirus initially spread in China. "One of those lessons is that the most effective way to minimize risk of the virus's transmission is to reduce density and maximize social distance. As rates of new infections continue to grow in other places, we're taking additional steps to protect our team members and customers."

In its Apple News app, the company is setting up a dedicated section for information from trusted outlets, and Cook said that while stores are closed customers should use the Apple website for service and support.

Lanvin Said Closing Chicago Store, St. John Moving In

ADIEU, LANVIN: Lanvin will close its Chicago boutique at 116 East Oak Street in the Gold Coast neighborhood, according to a source familiar with retail real estate in the area. The French house opened the store, which was once home to well-known retailer Ultimo, in March 2013. The source, who asked to remain anonymous, said St. John would be moving into the space after renovating the store. “It’s a pretty blank canvas inside the Lanvin space,” the source said.
Calls to the Lanvin and St. John stores confirmed the stores would be closing. St. John has a boutique at 919 North Michigan Avenue. A Lanvin salesperson said the store would be closing within two weeks. An e-mail to Lanvin public relations was not returned.
A story in Crain’s reported in 2012 that Fred Latsko paid $ 7.4 million for the former Ultimo store and Lanvin rented the 6,000-square-foot building. It was a 10-year-lease, with two five-year renewal options.
In addition to Chicago, Lanvin has stores in five U.S. cities: Costa Mesa, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami and New York.

Closing the Gap: Chain to Close 25% of Its North American Stores

Today Gap Inc. announced plans to shutter 175 stores across North America. In addition to the closings, the company will cut 250 jobs at its headquarters in San Francisco.

gap-jeans-store

While Gap will still operate 800 stores across the country—including 300 outlet stores—today’s announcements mark a harbinger of change for the clothing chain. Earlier this year Rebekka Bay, creative director and executive vice president for Gap Global Design, left the company. Her title was eliminated and the company hired C. Wonder alumna Wendi Goldman as its executive vice president of product design and development in late February.

“These decisions are very difficult, knowing they will affect a number of our valued employees, but we are confident they are necessary to help create a winning future for our employees, our customers and our shareholders,” said Gap global president Jeff Kirwan.

Laid Off Canadian Target Employees Embrace ‘Closing Time’ With Bittersweet Music Video

Target Canada closed every last one of the chain’s department stores on Sunday, but not before six employees in Victoria, British Columbia, sent theirs off with a proper farewell.

The workers — still wearing their red Target shirts — made a music video as the store packed up its last items, playing a cover of Semisonic’s “Closing Time” while seated on a dolly being dutifully, purposefully, pulled through the barren aisles.

“We poured our heart into our final goodbye through song, to a job we loved, and a building that contains so many great memories,” drummer Evan Holbein told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

According to the video’s YouTube description, the final product was shot in one take, with no practice, and “lots of improvisation.” In addition to Holbein on the drums rhythmic shopping basket, other band members included Liam McDonald on vocals and Kyle Vanderberg on guitar. Liam Kelly and Brady Zomer pulled the cart, and Eric Deibert caught the whole thing on video.

Reached for comment by the Star Tribune, Semisonic’s actual drummer, Jacob Slichter, said he found the cover to be “really powerful; that slow walk through the empty store and the sounds of things being loaded in the background.”

“I really hope these guys find jobs,” Slichter added.

Jon Stewart Perfectly Sums Up The GOP’s Closing Arguments

Election Day is here, and the Republicans are poised to win control of the U.S. Senate. For voters planning to head to the polls on Tuesday, “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart looked at what he called the GOP’s “closing arguments.”

On Monday night, Stewart played a series of clips from Republican campaigns that were focused on terrorism and Ebola.

“I thought that was a very powerful and cogent essayistic argument,” Stewart said. “Move over ‘hope and change’ and welcome ‘vote for us or get beheaded while pooping blood!'”

As Stewart learned, the Republicans aren’t just getting help from ads filled with fear. They’re also moving forward with voter ID laws that critics say make it more difficult for young, minority and female voters to cast their ballots. Of course, these Americans traditionally vote for Democrats.

Check out the clip above for more.
