Apple is apparently gearing up to open a sixth retail location in Manhattan by late 2015, according to a new report from ifoAppleStore

Likely to be located at 940 Madison Avenue, the future store will occupy a former banking complex built in 1921 that currently houses luxury retailer VBH. The building itself offers a large amount of space, featuring a 4,000 square-foot ground level and 1,000 square-foot mezzanine.

Apple has notably constructed a number of stores in historic locations, including a flagship store in Brisbane, Australia that is located in the famous MacArthur Chambers building and a store in a century-old theater complex located within Berlin's Kurfürstendamm avenue. The company's Grand Central, Opéra, and Buchanan Street retail stores have also been noteworthy for their significant locales.

Looks like a great spot.

6 stores in Manhattan though? They must generate enough business at all 5 to garner another.

Any Apple store in Manhattan is always mobbed your best bet is the 24 hour one on fifth Avenue at like 2am

I am guessing you missed that it was joke on my part as denote by the :D? Or maybe you just didnt find it funny. Let me try again with a knock knock joke --

Knock Knock
Whos there

Orange you glad I didnt say Apple?

Uh, yes. That was implicit in the post to which you responded.

Actually, it was not implicit.

The :D can be interpreted as extreme happiness and/or excitement about a subject or topic.

I think a more appropriate emoticon to use would be the :p or :rolleyes: , especially if I was joking or being sarcastic.

The first picture is not the new store's interior concept. It is what the current tenant's interior looks like. It will become the traditional Apple Store layout.
