Apple has multiple new stores planned to open over the second half of 2014 and first quarter of 2015. Among these is one planned for Marlborough, Mass, as revealed through job postings listed by Apple over the past 10 days.
Up until now, however, the store’s future location hasn’t been known. Fortunately a tipster has pointed out the exact location where the retail outlet — Apple’s 11th in the state — will be set to open.
The location will be in the Solomon Pond Mall, adjacent to I-290, and around 30 miles west of Boston. It is the second-largest metro trade area in the state. The mall’s leasing plan was recently updated, and it shows Apple occupying a T-shaped space covering approximately 7,400, to the right of a Clark’s store.
The location is typical of many of the U.S. Apple Stores planned for the near future, with the majority set to be inside malls rather than in self-contained street locations. Other stores planned for the U.S. include Virginia Beach (Virginia), Trumbull (Connecticut), and Manchester (New Hampshire). This is in addition to multiple Apple Stores planned for overseas. A GIFtastic map published earlier this year showed that only six U.S. states do not presently have Apple Stores.
Based on hiring schedules, ifoAppleStore predicts that the Marlborough Apple Store could open by year’s end.
