Apple retail locations will be closing their doors from 10am-11:30am PST tomorrow so that retail employees can watch a live broadcast of a memorial for Steve Jobs being held in Cupertino. No sales, one-on-ones, or other types of appointments will be able to be scheduled during that time frame.

The Cupertino event is being held in the outdoor amphitheater on Apple’s campus. Employees located in Cupertino will attend the event in person, while others in the U.S. will watch a livestream in-store. Australian and Asian employees will reportedly be able to watch a re-broadcast of the event at a later time.

A separate private event was held this past weekend at Stanford.
