Microsoft is closing all of its retail stores worldwide due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The move, which comes just days Apple shut all of its retail locations outside of China and hours after the US government recommended the limiting of social gatherings of 10 or more people, will see Microsoft close all of its 70 stores worldwide.
“All Microsoft Store locations are currently closed until further notice due to COVID-19 health concerns,” a notice from Microsoft reads. “We know that families, remote workers and businesses are under pressure at this time, and we are still here to serve you online at microsoft.com.”
The company hasn’t yet said when it plans to reopen its retail locations, but David Porter, corporate vice president at Microsoft, said in a Linkedin post that it was “carefully following the guidance of public health officials and local authorities to guide our decisions on store closures.”
