Apple is preparing to open a new store at the Del Amo Fashion Center shopping mall in Torrance, California, per building permits filed with the city in October. Torrance is located in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County.

The permits reveal that Apple will be located on the main level of the mall, between Lululemon and Madewell. The store will be taking over the combined space of two side-by-side units previously occupied by J.Crew and Chico's.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman was first to report on Apple's plans for the store in June, after obtaining the company's internal roadmap for retail expansion. Apple estimated that the store would open in March 2024, per the roadmap, but this timeframe is subject to change based on completion of construction, hiring, and other factors.

Apple is also moving forward with plans to relocate its store at the Square One shopping mall in Mississauga, Ontario, west of Toronto in Canada. Apple will be taking over a space previously occupied by Massimo Dutti on the second floor of the mall, above the food court, according to a building permit filed with the city in June.

Last, a building permit filed with Gwinnett County in May confirms that Apple plans to relocate its store at the Mall of Georgia in Buford, northeast of Atlanta. The new store will remain in the mall, but the permit did not reveal a specific location.

Apple estimated that the new Square One and Mall of Georgia stores would open in late 2023, based on the roadmap, but the projects are taking longer.

Earlier this month, Apple confirmed that it will be permanently closing its Infinite Loop store in Cupertino, California on January 20. Apple will also be shuttering its Royal Hawaiian store in Honolulu on the same day. Apple said all affected employees at both locations will be given the opportunity to continue working for the company.

If you haven’t been to the new Apple Store on Broadway in downtown LA, you really should go! They meticulously restored the Tower Theater and it is fantastic.

Apple stores are pretty boring now. Maybe it's simply the novelty wearing off, but years ago there was a lot more excitement when visiting the Apple store. Apple wasn't displayed in Best Buy and Costco back then either, so it felt more exclusive. Now it's easier than ever to walk past an Apple store without so much as a passing glance. RIP Steve.

Finally! The Del Amo is a great location for a new Apple Store. It's also way better of a mall than Manhattan Village. This will ease some of the pressure off the yearly iPhone lines. South Bay will be happy to see this addition.

Del Amo also has a decent amount of EV charging, too, for those of us that like to get their steps in while charging.
LOL! Del Amo is a terrible choice as it is full of thug kids every afternoon. Expect daily robberies. Manhattan village is a great location I don't know what you are talking about bro.
