History

Apple Yorkdale was boarded up in June 2020.

The Yorkdale location is the 104th Apple retail store to open, originally in a 3,539 square foot space that was remodeled in 2009. The shopping centre was expanded in 2012 and the store moved to a larger 9,830 square foot space. When the larger store was opened on November 12, 2012, it was at the time the largest Apple Store in North America.[3]

In June 2020, Apple Yorkdale was closed and pre-emptively boarded up during protests related to George Floyd. It was then covered with a mural of the Black Lives Matter movement.[4][5]
