Connecticut's sixth Apple Store location is set to open on Saturday, August 23 at The Promenade Shops at Evergreen Walk in South Windsor. Rumors of a new Apple Store at Evergreen Walk first popped up in February, after a black construction box showed up at the location, between Ann Taylor and the Clarks shoe store.

The Promenade Shops at Evergreen Walk is an outdoor shopping area housing more than 50 different retail stores and eateries. The new Apple Store joins five other Connecticut locations in Danbury, Farmington, Greenwich, New Haven, and Stamford.

Apple's South Windsor store will open at 10 a.m. local time on Saturday, where employees will likely hand out T-shirts to the first customers to visit the new location. The store has already begun accepting reservations for workshops and Genius Bar appointments.

Life sucked for me until the New Haven store opened.

Had an issue with my iPhone 4 power button and had to drive up to Danbury to get the replacement. Now, I'm 5 minutes from Apple.

The lines at Westfarms can be insane though. Also, not having to go west of the river is a big bonus. :)

Seems like there is an eastern part of Connecticut that has to choose between Providence, Boston, and West Farms. This should be much more convenient.
