I was in Shinjuku this afternoon, and the Apple store there is open. Does Apple know about this?

I can’t find any info anywhere about when this starts from.

@Haaa_Nemui which would explain why that store in Shinjuku is still open. In other words, it’s obviously not effective immediately that the store closures are going to happen. So we should give it a day or two, and all Apple stores will be closed.

@JCosplay - exactly! There wasn’t even a start date in Apple’s own announcement on their own page. Comments like one directly above mine are completely unwarranted.
