The Apple Retail Store in San Francisco’s Stonestown Galleria is scheduled to reopen in a new larger location towards the end of this year, sources tell MacDailyNews.
The opening was initially scheduled to take place on November 23rd but will be delayed until December due to damage to steel panels on the front of the store. Since there is no glass at the new location, the steel damage is a showstopper. The steel panels are manufactured in Japan and will be have to be shipped via boat.
Sources say that additional stress will be put upon the overloaded current location because inventory hub levels have already been increased to accommodate the anticipated extra space and sales, therefore the store’s current storage space is overused.
