Apple does use temporary stores if they need to and there is space available. But sometimes the same reason why a store needs to be expanded is the reason why there isn't an open space in the shopping center. This is why a lot of the upgrades have been to different locations. They can keep the old location until the new one is ready. Lone Tree, CO moved two doors down. (Tesla has the old space now.). While Alpharetta, moved to a different shopping center. Peabody, MA moved far enough that it is the only Apple store that had to change the name of the city it was located. But in all cases, no temporary store.
This is my favorite subject as I have been to 186 stores, including Simi Valley and the soon to close Atlantic City.
