Massive new Apple store to open in Toronto next month

Apple's footprint in downtown Toronto is about to more than double with the launch of a new, 10,000-square-foot store inside the Eaton Centre.

This, according to a MacRumors source — and also logic.

The unnamed source told MacRumors that Apple will host a grand opening for its new store in December, which makes sense given that the company is no longer scheduling events at its current Eaton Centre location after December 6.

Apple's new store — located in the ground floor unit formerly occupied by Abercromie & Fitch, near the popular mall's Queen Street entrance — is currently masked by construction barriers.

The source who spoke to MacRumours said that those barriers are expected to come down during the first half of December, however, revealing a shiny, new, much larger Apple store just in time for the holiday season.

While the California-based tech retailer does have stores at Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Fairview Mall and Sherway Gardens, the Eaton Centre remains Apple's only downtown Toronto location.

This will change, of course, when Apple finally builds and opens its not-so-secretly planned new flagship store — Toronto's first — under The One condominium complex at Yonge and Bloor Streets.
