The ongoing riots and looting in various locations throughout the UK are causing some Apple Stores to take no chances. Twitter user Terry Allen shot a couple of images of the Liverpool ONE Apple Store which had emptied its shelvs of inventory and moved them upstairs to prevent looting. In addition, the Regent Street store in London is being guarded by police and the Canterbury, Kent store is also empty.
The store, which normally looks something like the image below, is located on the ground floor of the Liverpool One Shopping Centre, which is on Paradise Street in Liverpool.
In addition, the Apple Store on Regent St. is being guarded by police fearing looters.
Twitter user PB mentions that the Manchester Arndale store has also been emptied out in preparation for possible looting.
Twitter user Manpreet Mellhi posts this image of a note taped in a store window attempting to prevent breakins:
