Apple Preparing to Open First Alaskan Retail Store in Anchorage

Apple retail store location at Fifth Avenue Mall in Anchorage, Alaska

ifoAppleStore reports that new job listings from Apple confirm earlier rumors that the company is preparing to open a retail store in the Fifth Avenue Mall in Anchorage, Alaska. The new store would be the company's first in Alaska and furthest-north of all of Apple's stores around the world.

According to the original tip, the fit-out is underway inside the former Eddie Bauer space on the second level of the downtown mall. Based on construction schedules, the store will open in September.

We have received similar word that construction on the store is underway.

The opening of the Anchorage store will leave just seven U.S. states without an Apple retail store: Arkansas, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
