Apple has announced that the grand opening for its new Cumberland Mall store in Atlanta, Georgia will take place this Saturday, September 6th at 10 AM. The store will be the sixth Apple retail location in the state.
It looks like construction is ready to get underway at the Franklin Park Mall location in Toledo as well, which will become the eighth store in Ohio. The iconic black barricades that usually precede the appearance of an Apple Store have been put up in front of the upcoming location (as seen in the photo above from Ed Hunter on Twitter).
Apple’s new VP of retail Angela Ahrendts has been pushing the corporation’s retail arm to expand to new locations worldwide and has said that she wants to create am improved Apple Store experience for customers.

Wow. An Apple store in Toledo, OH. I guess the Toledo economy is doing a lot better than I thought. Now how about an Apple store in KingsDale Shopping Center in Upper Arlington?
the kingsdale center? you mean the one that’s just been revitalized in the past few years with absolutely no new retail shopping stores? Macy’s is the only thing keeping that place alive.
I live in Toledo and have been waiting for this since 2005 when I converted! It’s a great location, in a beautiful mall. I have friends that work at the Ann Arbor MI store that tell me a huge percentage of their customer base is from Toledo and its suburbs… Plus it’s a stones throw from the University of Toledo.
