Apple Oakridge is an Apple Store located in San Jose, California, USA. It opened for business in 2004 as Apple's 92nd retail store and is internally identified as R105. It has since moved up to become the 91st Apple retail store still in operation, as another preceding store had closed over the years.[1][2]

Location[]

This Apple Store is presently situated at 925 Blossom Hill Road within the Westfield Oakridge mall at San Jose. It is normally open from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Monday to Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 11:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, its hours have been changed to 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Sunday to Thursday, and 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

History[]

This location was originally opened as Apple Store Oakridge within a tiny 750-square-foot space at the Westfield Oakridge mall on October 16, 2004. It was one of the first locations to be based around Apple Computer's "mini" store design as retail space became challenging to find at the rate they were being opened at the time.[3][4]

Relocation[]

On February 14, 2015, the Oakridge store was moved to a much-larger space within the same mall, making the previous location the last and longest-operating "mini" store, before being replaced.[5]

Incidents[]

On March 14, 2020, this store was closed during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.[6] It was reopened on June 15, 2020, but with more limited service in observance of health precautions.[7]
