Larger Stonestown Apple Retail Store Opening in San Francisco on Saturday




Apple is vastly increasing the size of its Stonestown Galleria Apple Retail Store in San Francisco, going from one of the narrowest locations in the chain at 25 feet wide -- a total of 3,160 square feet including back of house space -- to a much larger location a reported 7,600 square feet of total space.

The new store location will open on Saturday, December 14 at 8AM for extended holiday hours (via 9to5Mac), just two Saturdays before Christmas.

According to ifoAppleStore:
Quote:
The mall plan shows how the T-shaped Apple store will move into three spaces that form a curved storefront. Apple will occupy spaces 170, 171 and about the right-most 10 feet of #172 (the remaining part to the left will be occupied by a bakery restaurant). The width of the storefront will increase from 25 feet to nearly 75 feet. The square footage will increase from 3,160 to about 7,690, double the original space.
Apple has moved a number of its stores within the same general areas in recent years, focusing on increased square footage of existing locations as they get busier, rather than building new locations.

Last month, Apple more than doubled the size of its Rockingham Park Apple Store in Salem, New Hampshire, one of the busiest mall locations in the chain.

Couple weeks until Christmas. What a coincidence that all these stores are opening now.
