It’s not much of a surprise to Manhattanites (or the folks who have been enjoying their leaked photos for weeks), but Apple has officially announced the opening of its latest retail store location in Grand Central Station, New York City’s fifth such venue. “Just in time for the holidays,” the new location will open its doors at 10am EST this Friday, December 9.
Apple has issued a press release touting its new Apple Store Grand Central, billed as a “one-of-a-kind Apple retail store” which “overlooks the historic Main Concourse from the East and North East balconies of the world-famous Grand Central Terminal” in Manhattan, New York. The largest store yet “in one of New York’s busiest transportation hubs,” the location includes not one but two Genius Bars for free tech support and advice.
“The store’s expert team has 315 passionate employees who deliver these and other amazing services, which have become the hallmark of Apple retail stores worldwide,” the press release explains. “Beyond the balcony overlooking the expansive Main Concourse, the Apple Store Grand Central offers rooms dedicated to some of our most popular services, including the largest area in the world dedicated to Personal Setup. In the Personal Setup room, customers who buy an iPad®, iPhone, iPod® or Mac® can get up and running before they leave the store. There’s also a room designed especially for Personal Training, where new Mac owners learn the basics or take their skills to the next level as part of Apple’s popular $99 One to One program.”
Including the new Grand Central location, there are now 361 Apple Stores in 11 countries including the United States, France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Japan, China, Australia and Canada. Apple Store Grand Central will open this Friday, December 9 at 10am EST and regular hours will be from 7am to 9pm EST Monday through Friday, 10am to 7pm EST Saturday and 11am to 6pm EST Sunday.
