Apple has announced the upcoming expansion of two other stores, next Saturday, September 29, at 10 AM AM. These most recent additions to the list represent a total of five stores that are reopened or moved the same day.

Saturday's retail blitz comes a little more than a week after the launch of the iPhone XS and Apple Series 4, when Apple celebrated Apple Eastview's move in Victor, New York to an expansive store and the completion of Apple Suzhou, the 505th the company's store.
Apple Deer Park is located in the Deer Park Town Center, a shopping mall in the suburbs of Illinois. The region has grown since the current store opened in September 2007 and a new shopping complex called The Palazzo of Deer Park is planned across the street.
Apple will move to a larger and more prominent store front, clearly visible from the main entrance of the center and similar in design with other stores in open-air shops. We visited the construction site in August and observed the new area in progress, which was covered with black plywood during most of the summer.

In Whitehall, Pennsylvania, Apple Lehigh Valley would almost reflect the appearance of Deer Park and be in a similar open-air shopping center. In fact, the current store opened only two weeks after his brother or sister in Illinois. Apple's plans to combine and renovate spaces formerly occupied by J. Crew and Ann Taylor were discovered in April by a SEC depot from the Simon Property Group shopping center, co-owner of the shopping mall. Construction had to be completed in September.

On 29 September, the reopening of Apple Green Hills in Nashville and the closure of Apple Biltmore will also be replaced by a new store in Fashion Square in Scottsdale. In Australia, Apple Robina becomes the second store in the country to receive modern design elements.
If you are planning to attend one of the major openings, we would like to see your photo's of the line and new stores. You can also follow our Apple trade guide for more store news.
