Roseville Galleria Apple Store Reopens After Mall Fire


Apple's retail store at the Roseville Galleria outside of Sacramento, California has reopened as part of the first wave of stores just one week after an arsonist barricaded himself inside a mall store and set fire. Due to concerns over whether the arsonist carried an explosive device in his backpack, firefighters were unable to directly combat the fire for some time, resulting in over $50 million in damage to the mall.

Apple's store is at the opposite end of the 250-store, 1.5 million square-foot mall from where the fires were set, enabling it to be in the first wave of 35-40 stores and restaurants reopening today after construction workers were able to seal off the more heavily damaged portions of the mall and government authorities were able to ensure that the undamaged portion of the mall was fit to resume operations.
