MacSolutions Plus, an independent Apple specialist store, is preparing to combine its two area locations into one store, at the Eastern Hills Mall in Clarence.
The consolidation takes effect May 31. MacSolutions Plus will close its location at 10 Center Road in West Seneca, which never had much of a retail presence and has mostly handled service work.
Garret Cleversley, owner of MacSolutions Plus, said his nine-employee business has been "spread a little thin" across two locations. Combining them will allow him to focus on making better use of the mall space, which includes a training center. "I call it expanding through contraction," he said. All his employees will be retained in the switch.
MacSolutions Plus debuted in the mall in 2010, after searching for a spot for a retail store. Last August, to accommodate its growth, the business moved within the mall to its current home, a 3,800-square-foot space across from Dave & Buster's. "The mall store is performing awesomely," he said.
MacSolutions Plus sells and services Apple products under an authorized license from Apple. His is an independent business, not a corporate Apple store like the store in the Walden Galleria.
