Apple Stores in several countries around the world will have reduced hours later this month, according to a new report.
Apple Stores everywhere from China to Canada to Italy report that they'll have special hours, including early closing times, starting on November 15. The shortened hours appear to be staggered. Apple's Paris store, for example, will have special hours on November 18 and November 19. One of the company's Hong Kong stores will have special hours on November 17.
It's not clear why Apple, which plans to launch the new iPad Mini with Retina this month and the Mac Pro in December, is holding special hours at so many stores around the world. Interestingly, the company isn't cutting its store hours in the US.
CNET has contacted Apple for comment on the report. We will update this story when we have more information.
