Persistent rumors of the Legacy Village (Ohio) Apple retail store moving away have now been confirmed with the sighting of construction work behind a fence at the Eton Chagrin Boulevard mall, about four miles away. Besides gaining a new location, the store will nearly double in size, insiders say. The current store opened in October 2003 in a 30-foot wide space west of Cleveland. Many of the stores that opened in that era have already been expanded by knocking out walls or moving to a new space. In this case, it’s likely that, for various reasons, Legacy Village could not produce an empty, larger space for Apple. With no prospect of a larger space, and the expiration of the store’s initial 10-year lease, Apple decided to move. Most recently, Apple moved The Gateway (Utah) store operation to a mall nearby, creating the new City Creek store.
The current Legacy Village store (blue pushpin) will move to the Eton Chagrin Boulevard store (red pushpin).
