From July 9, Apple retail stores in Chadstone, Southland, Fountain Gate, and Doncaster will close, only operating for store pickup and appointment-only service.
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced on the 7th of July, Melbourne will head into a six-week lockdown effective as of 11:59 PM on July 8.
