T-Mobile is closing 80% of its stores
until at least March 31st, including all indoor mall locations, to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Sprint will close 71% of its stores, including all indoor mall locations. Both closures take effect today. Verizon
is also "reducing the number of Verizon stores that remain open", although it was not more specific. T-Mobile will leave at least one store open within a 30-minute drive of most customers in each market. Sprint is leaving open "its most highly critical retail stores". T-Mobile and Sprint are also reducing the hours their remaining stores are open. Most T-Mobile stores will now be open 10am - 6pm. Sprint's new temporary store hours
are 11am - 6pm Mon-Sat, and 12pm - 5pm on Sundays.
Following T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon in temporarily closing many retail locations, AT&T today announced
that it will close 40% of its company-owned stores, as well as AT&T Authorized Retail stores in indoor malls and "high traffic areas
". The company is also adjusting its store hours to be closed on Sundays, and 11am - 7pm the rest of the week. These measures are in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, where most people in the US are currently advised to stay home, and avoid congregating near others in public when possible.
