Chestnut St. Apple Store promises October 5th return

updated 03:25 pm EDT, Mon September 26, 2011

Part of preparations for new iPhones

The Chestnut Street Apple Store in San Francisco is temporarily closed and reopening on October 5th, messages posted on the Apple website and on the building itself reveal. The closure is likely related to renovations, given the presence of a black construction facade covering the windows. An AT&T van was today spotted outside of the store, though what if anything technicians were installing is unknown.

The scheduling of the downtime may be well-planned. Apple is expected to announce new iPhones and iPods on October 4th, and reopening Chestnut on the 5th may give store workers extra time to arrange new products and marketing. In any case Apple has been renovating, expanding or opening retail locations at a marathon pace since late July, likely in a bid to have as many shops ready for an iPhone launch as possible.
