Dedham, Mass. Apple Store
The area surrounding Boston, Massachusetts will soon gain another Apple Store, reports indicate. The new outlet is set to open in the town of Dedham, just southwest of Boston. It should be located within the Legacy Place mall, which is being built alongside Interstate 95 but will generally target richer customers with attractions such as L.L. Bean and Whole Foods, as well as office space and a movie theater.
The mall is expected to contain 675,000 square feet of usable space, though it remains unknown where the Apple Store will be situated. The store is likely to open with the rest of Legacy Place in the fall however, and when completed will be unusually close to other Boston Apple Stores -- just five miles away from the Chestnut Hill outlet, and 12 miles from the South Shore storefront. Apple has promised that it will launch only 25 new Apple Stores worldwide in 2009.
