Apple is set to open its first store in The Bronx.
Welco Realty’s James O’Brien brokered the deal for the new store at The Mall at Bay Plaza, developed by Prestige Properties & Development Co. in 2014.
Jerry Welkis, president of Welco Realty and exclusive agent for The Mall at Bay Plaza and Bay Plaza Shopping Center said, “We were thrilled that we were finally able to sign a lease with Apple to bring them into the mall and to service the Bronx population as well as the southern Westchester county.”
Apple will open at the Mall on Friday (Sept. 24). Although it has 10 stores in New York City, Apple has never had an outpost in the Bronx.
The Bay Plaza development is one of the largest retail
developments in the city of New York with over two million square feet of
retail, entertainment and office space. The Mall was the most recent retail
addition to the overall Bay Plaza development.
The enclosed mall opened on August 14, 2014. It was the
first enclosed regional mall to be open in NYC in over 40 years anchored by
JCPenney and Macy’s.
Apple joins many
other major retail chains that are part of the Mall at Bay Plaza Shopping
Center including H & M, Forever21, Victoria’s Secret, American Eagle,
Aeropostale, Bath & Body Works, GAP, Old Navy, Billy Beez, Pandora, Foot
Locker, Uniqlo, XSport Fitness among many other fine retailers.
There is also a major food court while the power center
adjacent to the mall (Bay Plaza) has such notable retailers as AMC, Marshall’s,
P C Richards, DSW, Stop & Shop, Ashley Furniture, Burlington, Bob’s Furniture,
Raymour & Flanigan, and Sephora.
