Apple appears set to reopen its Pioneer Place store in Portland, Oregon, on February 22.
According to 9to5Mac:
As Michael Steeber notes, the store was renovated in 2019, and was open less than a year before all Apple stores closed due to COVID-19. Whilst closed, the store was caught up in riots during May, which saw the store sustain heavy damage.

Just a couple of days later the store was adorned with a mural that Apple has since donated to the non-profit 'Don't Shoot Portland'. From that report:
According to Steeber and 9to5Mac, the store is now set to reopen on Monday, February 22, for the first time in 267 days. The store's website has not yet been updated to reflect the change.
