Apple closes MacArthur Center store in Virginia on May 14
The Apple Store at MacArthur Center in Norfolk, Virginia is closing for good, following the closure of many major stores in the mall.
As previously reported, Apple plans to close its MacArthur Center store in Virginia. The store’s own webpage now confirms that the last day will be Friday, May 14.
The same web page still includes directions to the store that say it is “central level, across from Pottery Barn”. However, Pottery Barn left the mall in January 2019.
At the same time, the center lost Williams-Sonoma, and since then Nordstrom, Forever 21, Banana Republic, and more have closed or announced plans to shut down.
Apple’s closure means the state of Virginia will end up with eight Apple Stores. Closest to the MacArthur Center in Norfolk Town is the Apple Lynnhaven Mall, 14 miles east.
Apple MacArthur Center’s May 14 announcement was first spotted by 9to5mac.
Apple has previously said it wants to offer new positions to all of its Apple MacArthur Center staff.
