According to 9to5Mac’s report, Apple will reopen the store on Monday for the first time since that night. However, the tech firm did not update the store’s website to show the new opening times.
Due to the vandalism that emerged just a year after Apple reopened the store after a major renovation, it had to make major repairs to the showcase. In addition, it is not known whether the latest renovation will make any changes to the design of the store.
Lastly, it should be noted that Apple donated the Black Lives Matter mural painted on the barricades around the store to the nonprofit Don’t Shoot PDX. The mural was launched by local artist Emma Berger on June 1, and other artists He contributed to the rest with messages and portraits.
