Apple’s flagship retail store is moving up the street to Union Square and increasing its size in the process.
Mayor Ed Lee and Board of Supervisors President David Chiu announced on Thursday plans to relocate the existing Apple Store at 1 Stockton St. three blocks north to 300 Post St., which is adjacent to Union Square.
“I’m excited that the company that revolutionized consumer technologies is moving to the heart of Union Square,” President Chiu said in a statement released to the press.
By moving, Apple will increase the store’s size by 45 percent while adding another 50 employees to the payroll. Apple has filed application with The City’s Planning Department to move to the site currently occupied by a Levi’s store.
