Last week ifoAppleStore.com, a website that follows Apple’s retail news, reported that the Bellevue Square Apple store will move locations and expand later this year. The Apple Store at Bellevue Square is currently located on the 1st floor within the Nordstrom wing.
The report states that the Apple Store will relocate to the 2nd floor next to Papyrus, where Talbots and Bailey Banks & Biddle retail stores were previously located. The current store is 4,600 square feet, and the speculated new space would more than double the current store’s size.
The store move (if accurate) is likely motivated by Apple’s small store in Belleveue Square that is always packed, coupled with the Microsoft Store opening their flagship location in Bellevue Square earlier this year, only a few doors down. The report also points out that every customer leaving that Microsoft Store would see the Apple store when looking up.
The report does not state when the move will take place, but does state that it will happen this year.
