Apple is set to open a new Apple Store in Toledo, OH’s Franklin Park Mall sometime during the fourth quarter of 2014. This will be Ohio’s eighth Apple Store, with its seventh opening last month in Dayton.

The company has already posted 15 job openings via its website, while it recently advertised a full-time retail general manager post via the website CareerBuilder.com.

The new Apple Store is supposedly located in a space previously occupied by female clothing brand Charlotte Russe, which has relocated within the mall. According to sources, Apple is aiming for a late November opening to prepare for Black Friday sales.

Apple has reportedly asked that several kiosks are moved from the store entrance to avoid blocking it.

The company supposedly negotiated to acquire space in the Franklin Park Mall two years ago when it was under its previous ownership, although negotiations fell through.

A spokesperson for Franklin Park Mall said that the mall does not comment on deals with prospective retailers.
