Apple’s Infinite Loop Store to Close Permanently in Cupertino

Apple has officially announced the permanent closure of its iconic Infinite Loop retail store in Cupertino, California, effective January 20. This store, which once served as Apple’s headquarters from the mid-1990s until 2017, when the new Apple Park headquarters opened nearby, holds significant historical value for Apple enthusiasts.

To ensure a smooth transition for its dedicated team, Apple is offering all Infinite Loop store employees the chance to continue their roles within the company. Some employees may have the option to relocate to nearby stores, such as the Apple Park Visitor Center and Apple Valley Fair.

An Apple spokesperson shared, “After many years of serving customers at our stores in the Bay Area, we plan to close our store at Infinite Loop. All of our valued team members will have the opportunity to continue their roles with Apple.”

Despite the closure of the Infinite Loop store, Apple reassures customers of its ongoing commitment to delivering an excellent retail experience. The tech giant has opened new stores in various locations, including the U.S., China, India, South Korea, and the U.K., and has expanded its online store to Chile and Vietnam.

While the retail space at Infinite Loop is closing, the offices at the campus will continue to house Apple’s corporate employees. A construction sign outside the main building’s atrium indicates ongoing renovations until early 2024.

Originally opening its doors in 1993 as The Company Store, the Infinite Loop location underwent renovations in 2015, transforming into a more conventional Apple retail store. Despite its smaller size and the absence of Genius Bar appointments or “Today at Apple” sessions, the store maintained its popularity among Apple enthusiasts.

However, the opening of the Apple Park Visitor Center in 2017 has shifted attention away from Infinite Loop. The Visitor Center offers a diverse collection of Apple-branded merchandise and functions as a traditional Apple retail store. Additional features include a Caffè Macs coffee bar, a rooftop patio, and a large AR model of the Apple Park campus.
