Apple Preps Broadway Store for Opening
Fortune reports that Apple has issued media invitations for a preview of the company's fourth Manhattan store scheduled to officially open in New York City's Upper West Side at Broadway and 67th Street on Saturday, November 14th.
The store, located on the Upper West Side at Broadway and 67th Street, is well-positioned to get attention from the crowds and the TV cameras that will line the avenue for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade less than two weeks later.ifoAppleStore previewed the new store earlier this month, showing off the "curtain" barrier currently shielding the store from public view and a high-level view of the store's unique glass roof and curving faade.
The Upper West Side store opening is part of a rush of several such high-profile openings as the company prepares for the holiday shopping season. Apple's first French retail store opens in Paris tomorrow, with a second French store set to open in Montpellier the following weekend.
