Apple Store in Victoria Unconfirmed as Mayfair Mall Expansion Nears Completion

Last fall, it was rumoured an Apple Store would land in British Columbia’s capital city of Victoria, at Mayfair Mall, as part of the retail outlet’s expansion plans.

CHEK News said an unnamed source told them an Apple Store was coming, while months later, Citified seemingly corroborated the story by saying it was hearing the same thing.

With the Mayfair Mail expansion set to complete, the mall refused to comment on whether an Apple Store was coming, according to CTV Vancouver Island. General manager Laura Poland only said “The leasing team will spare no expense, no effort to try and secure retailers that shoppers in Victoria would like.”

New stores opening this week include Roots and Olson Europe, while Indigo will open later this year. The mall expansion is on schedule and “our retailers are taking a phased approach of opening when it suits them,” said Poland.

The $72 million expansion at Mayfair will bring the total square footage to 554,000 at the mall when complete.
