Apple Oakridge Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia permanently closed on Saturday. The store celebrated its 11th and final anniversary just before going dark as Oakridge Centre prepares for an extensive renovation project.
Plans to close the majority of Oakridge Centre retailers in an effort to speed up renovation were announced in August. Apple confirmed on September 9 that its location in the mall would close on the evening on September 26.
When complete in 2024, the new Oakridge Centre is expected to offer housing for 6,000, outdoor community spaces, and an entirely reimagined retail and dining district.
Mall owner QuadReal says Apple will rejoin the new development with a 10,000 square-foot store, although Apple has not confirmed any plans to do so.
