Apple’s first Apple Store in Vancouver will soon be replaced by a new flagship store at Pacific Centre that’s ready for its grand opening next weekend, reports Daily Hive.

Located in the heart of downtown at Pacific Centre, the previous location was relatively small, but the new two-storey location will have 14,000 square feet, and looks to complete the original 2019 application for the store.

The new Apple Store Pacific Centre replaces the front entrance of the mall on West Georgia and Howe, with 30-foot high glass facades currently adorned with a mural by Canadian designer Mooren (Mo) Bofill, with Musqueam First Nation artist Debra Sparrow adding to the design as well.

Here’s what the Apple Store Pacific Centre looked like back in October as construction was underway, according to iPhone in Canada reader Rob:
