For five months it’s been common knowledge around the Manhattan Village (S. Calif.) shopping mall that the Apple store will move into an huge expansion space, but the company has yet to officially announce the move to its store employees. Security guards, other mall stores employees and even customers seem to know what’s happening and have been talking about the move. Either way, the store that opened in July 2005 will eventually leave its 3,985 square-foot space and move a larger space formerly occupied by Pottery Barn with 10,452 square-feet. For now, the construction barricade isn’t painted Apple’s traditional black, but that move could come later. The expansion construction could be finished by September.
