According to a report from ifoAppleStore, Apple could have its eyes on a new store inside Masonville Place Mall in London, Ontario. Noting real estate sources, the prospective location for the store could be in the upper level where Eddie Bauer currently resides. The clothing store is set to depart this week due to bankruptcy, leaving its 6,176 square footage available to a possible Apple Store:
As confirmation, city records indicate that planning officials are reviewing a $3 million construction project for the mall that includes an Apple logo.
The mall’s Wikipedia entry already notes rumours of a possible Apple Store opening. Estimations for a possible opening could come in Fall of 2012.
Earlier this year, Apple opened a location 124KM away at Conestoga Mall, deep within RIM’s backyard of Waterloo. Other new stores included locations in at Mapleview Centre in Burlington, and Metrotown in Burnaby. Other rumours also note a possible store opening on Robson Street in downtown Vancouver.
