Apple has confirmed it will close its Frisco and Plano stores as the company prepares to open a Galleria Dallas location in April.
Apple would not comment on when the Frisco and Plano locations are closing. The Frisco store is inside Stonebriar Centre, and the Plano store is at The Shops at Willow Bend.
The company released the following statement Feb. 22 about the closures:
“We’re making a major investment in our stores in Texas, including significant upgrades to NorthPark Center, Southlake and Knox Street with a new Dallas store coming to the Dallas Galleria this April, we’ve made the decision to consolidate stores and close Apple Stonebriar and Apple Willow Bend. All employees from those stores will be offered positions at the new Dallas store or other Apple locations.”
With the two closures and one opening, Apple will have five locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The company employs 1,000 people in DFW, according to Apple.
Apple stores are known for the Genius Bar, where customers can receive in-person support and repairs for Apple products. The stores also showcase the latest Apple products for customers to test.
