Apple will continue its expansion in Canada with a store at the Masonville Place mall in the city of London (Ont.), filling in coverage between existing stores in the Toronto (Ont.) and Detroit (Mich.) regions. According to real estate sources, Apple will move into the upper-level space that Eddie Bauer will vacate this week as part of its earlier bankruptcy filing. The nearly-square space covers about 6,176 square-feet next to a Gap store, with a 73-foot storefront. As confirmation, city records indicate that planning officials are reviewing a $3 million construction project for the mall that includes an Apple logo. The store would be about halfway between the existing Conestoga store in Canada and the Partridge Creek store in Michigan, and could open in fall 2012.
