  • Apple Reportedly Planning Major New Retail Outlets in NY and CA


    Apple is reaching coast to coast with its expanding number of retail outlets. As expected, Apple is gearing up to bulk up the number of Apple Stores currently available across the US. And according to a report Monday from The New York Observer, Apple is going big with its next groundbreakings.

    Covering the real estate scene in New York, writer Laura Kusisto says Apple "has begun a super-secret quest" for a store in historic Grand Central Terminal. "Reliable sources" sparked the report, which contends that Apple wants to open a store in the aforementioned transportation and retail hub, although the company "has yet to begin the long approval process necessary for opening in a city landmark." While it's clear that a considerable period of time will pass before Apple's grand plans for Grand Central Terminal take shape, the boys and girls in Cupertino have plenty with which to occupy themselves in nearby Palo Alto, California.

    According to another slate of published reports, Apple is also looking at building an elaborate glass-shrine of a retail store similar to that which is found on Manhattan's Upper West Side. As it stands, Apple is considering a 16,600 square-foot store to be located at 340 University Avenue. Apple currently has an Apple Store in Palo Alto, which would likely be replaced by the new ornate structure.

      THAT... Is very asthetically pleasing to the eye. I agree, the three floor stores are pretty sweet looking. The best one we have around here is Cherry Hill, NJ. Just a standard store.

      Don't see the point, three floors of display Macs, iPads, iPods and iPhones, waste of money...

      Like what, every color of iPods they have, multiple times? An iMac with 2 gigs of ram, then on with 4? how about a wall full of accessories that all look the same but are different brands. Seriously...Apple doesn't have that many products.

      Whoopy Ding Dong... now about opening some stores in cities and states that don't yet have them? Maybe Alaska, for instance, as we are some of the biggest consumers of Apple products per capita of any other state, yet we have no Apple store. Why does this suck? Because we can't just take our Macbooks and iPhones to the retail store anytime something goes wrong. We either have to A) take it to a local "Apple Authorized Dealer" who will charge us through the nose just to look at our stuff, or B) ship the whole shebang to Apple, which on a good day costs twice as much as it would for the rest of you in the continental US.

      So sorry, I'm really not impressed by this Apple.

      I agree... The total overall feel of an Apple store totally makes up for it. And besides... If you really want a product, it's on the internet.

      The apple stores are awesome, they are there mostly to look around and chill. It boosts there appearance. And some people use it as a computer lab!!
