Calif. Store Closed For Unknown Renovations

July 18, 2011

Black plastic has appeared over the front display window of the Burlingame (N. Calif.) retail store, with white lettering only declaring, “We’ll be back July 23.” The store opened in July 2003 and generally featured on the current interior design features. At about 9:30 p.m. last night a worker finished applying adhesive-backed black plastic to the front window. Lettering on the plastic noted the re-open date and, “In the meantime, please visit apple.com/retail to find the nearest Apple store.” There are 14 stores in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, of which six are within a 25-minute drive of the Burlingame store. Update: Interior photos show the front 15 feet of the store is separated from the rest of the store with plastic, and there is ceiling-roof work being performed.

The front 15 feet or so of the store is partitioned off from the rest of the store with plastic. Protective material has been placed over the stone floor, and there is scaffolding and a scissor-lift inside.

The yellow scaffolding indicates some type of ceiling or roof work is being performed.
