The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that Apple has submitted plans to move its flagship retail store in that city to a new location three blocks away. The new location, at Stockton and Post Streets, will be directly adjacent to Union Square, home to many of the city’s finest retailers.
Supervisor David Chiu said he hoped the new silver box-shaped computer store and customer service center would “turbo-charge” the Union Square area, which has long been home to many of the city’s high-end retailers.
The new outlet will occupy the space at Stockton and Post streets formerly occupied by Levi’s and be about 45 percent larger than the existing space, though it will include all the same features.
Apple says the staff at the new location will increase to 400, compared to the 350 employees at the current location. No timeline for the construction and move has been released.
