Apple's Larger Store at Canada's Square One Mall Opens Next Saturday

Apple's relocated store at the Square One shopping mall in Mississauga, Ontario will hold its grand opening on Saturday, March 23 at 10 a.m. local time, according to updated wording on the store's construction facade, shared with us by Apollo Zhao. Mississauga is located just west of Toronto, the most populous city in Canada.

Thursday, March 21 will be the final day of business at Apple's existing Square One store, which originally opened in August 2009.

The new store is located on the second floor of Square One, above the central food court, and it has a very wide, partially-curved facade. It has a significantly larger footprint than the existing store, which will allow it to better accommodate the heavy customer traffic at Canada's second-largest indoor shopping mall.

it scares me why apple keeps opening stores when both iPad and Mac sales are down. even iPhone not selling as well as they original.ly planned. I guess they plan on selling lots of $4000 Vision Pro units.

They dont own any of the land all their stores are on. So they could easily rapidly close stores like a McDonalds one day with only the leases to worry about.
Because Apple Retail Stores aren't necessarily there for sales - they're used so everyone can put their hands on everything Apple. Apple Retail is Apple's form of marketing. I don't need to sell you on anything, just come in play around with our products and the rest will follow.

Ive just never trusted authorised “dealers”… with repairs or anything where corners can be cut.
I get where you're coming from, but way back when I had a damaged screen on my laptop and the price for replacement was super, super high from Apple. However, the local 3rd party authorized repair centre said they could replace it with a refurb screen which saved me hundreds of $. It was nice to be able to get an Apple authorized service technician but using cheaper parts sourced elsewhere. A step down from new Apple parts but way, way cheaper, and a big step up from unauthorized shops.

I think thats what worries me most…. Unauthorised repair shops… there is no quality or safety control over components like batteries.

So i avoid them completely.
That's ridiculous. A lot of unauthorized shops actually repair stuff, they aren't just board swappers like Apple stores and the authorized shops. If the problem is something that's going to reoccur because it's a problem on every board an unauthorized shop may be able to fix it, a board out of Apple's repair stock is going to have the exact same issue eventually.

If you're worried about batteries, ask who their battery supplier is. Good shops will tell you. And keep in mind that Apple doesn't make batteries, they've never built a single battery. Every "Apple" battery comes out of some factory in China.

An unauthorized shop can replace a blown fuse on a logic board, they'll charge you for the labor and the $0.50 part. Apple will sell you a new logic board for a thousand $ or more.

Of course, that's one of the malls in the GTA ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greater_Toronto_Area') that is still thriving, like Yorkdale Mall or Scarborough Town Centre. So many other malls are dying though.
Yorkdale is such an awesome mall. That one is really thriving. Great to see. Think it has so many good stores though and places to eat.
