The service will be held from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. PST at an outdoor amphitheater at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., according to reports by Reuters and the Wall Street Journal.

That means stores in the District, Maryland and Virginia will be closed from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tech appointments and tutorial appointments will not be available during that time.

Store employees will be able to view a live webcast of the event, which is being billed as a celebration of the tech visionary’s life.

Jobs, who was 56, was buried in Palo Alto on Oct. 7. A private memorial was held Sunday.

Apple has not announced any public services, but continues to run a memorial page on the company’s Web site.
