Turnaround time for MPB battery replace at Apple Store? (while u wait?)

My daughter's 2015 MBP needs a new battery.

We will be in Knoxville next weekend and was wondering if they can do these in a day at the Apple Stores.

On a side note, I got this refurb in 2015 for $1609.

I looked at the refurb store today, and they still have that model, but for $1699.

Same 2.2 i7 model. Maybe different RAM/SSD specs. But still, after 3.5 years?

It could be done in 5 minutes - depends on how busy they are, if the battery is in stock, etc.

At a relatively well attended Apple Store I was able to get the camera replaced in my iPhone 7+ in 2 hours but as ever, YMMV.

That's a full top-case replacement. The battery is glued in.

With a Genius Bar appointment, they can sometimes do it in-house in a day or so if they have the part, but it's often sent out for repair taking anywhere from 2 days (used to be able to count on a 2-day turnaround) to two weeks (mail-in repairs dragged on for ages last year) because it's fairly labor-intensive and they have lots of other Macs to work on at the store.

yes, who could have predicted this 3.5 years ago? that we lust after 2015 models, now in 2019.

WTF Apple, get your a$$ moving.

There are still those who would take a mid-2012rather than a current model.

With updated internals I would prefer the 2012 over the current MBP. It starts with the keyboard and power switch, the 2012's is better in my opinion.
