THE Apple Sainte-Catherine, in Bordeaux (France), was invaded last Saturday (8/12) during protests by protesters of the ?yellow vest?, as disclosed by the French website MacGeneration (Google translator).
In videos posted on social media, you can see that looters broke the store windows before breaking into the building and stealing MacBooks, iPhones, iPads and others gadgets that were displayed on the tables.

At dawn yesterday, Apple employees installed plywood sheets on the glass windows to prevent further attacks, but the damage caused by the Saturday invasion must be accounted for by the company. In Paris, Ma's three stores were closed and also received extra protection.
As we mentioned, products stolen from Ma stores become basically unusable. In addition, they are ineligible for technical support ie buying stolen iPhones from Apple Stores is always a bad deal.
This is not the first time that Ma has suffered from the uprising of protests in France: in previous years, riots in Paris caused damage to Apple Opra. In addition, the site currently occupied by Apple Champs-lyses has also been invaded.
