It’s finally happened: the Apple Watch is now is stock at Apple stores.

Apple said Wednesday that customers are now able to purchase an Apple Watch on the spot at the company’s retail stores in all nine countries where it’s on sale, including the U.S., Canada, Japan, and China, according to the Wall Street Journal. They can also purchase a Watch online and pick it up at a store.

Until now, the Apple Watch was only available for direct delivery through Apple’s website. That was unlike Apple’s usual strategy of making new products available in-store as soon as they started shipping online. After unveiling the Apple Watch in October, the company started to accept pre-orders on April 10; the first units began to ship April 24.

Apple Stores started to receive shipments of spare watch bands customers could purchase separately from the Watch in late May.

Apple also said that it plans to make the watch available in seven additional countries, including Italy, Mexico, South Korea, and Spain, on June 26.
