• New Apple Retail Store Set to Open in Queens, New York on July 11



    It has recently been revealed that the much anticipated Apple retail store at the Queens Center shopping mall in New York City will be opening this Saturday, July 11th. The grand opening of the store will be the first-ever store in the borough of Queens that was announced by the company this week. The doors are set to officially open at 10:00am on Saturday.

    For those of you who didn’t know, the Queens Center shopping center draws heavy foot traffic and the new Apple store location, which is set to be located on the mall’s second floor, is expected to be a popular destination. The market director at Apple Retail, Jason Barlia, said the following in a statement to New York Daily News regarding the matter:

    We are really excited to bring our eighth store in NYC to Queens. When we saw this location it made a lot of sense.
    The company was revealed to have roughly 130s staff members at the new spot and that they will speak a total of 25 languages including English. Roughly two-thirds of staffers are set to be bilingual. One thing to note though is that unlike Apple’s other locations in New York City, the Queens Center store will be in line with the standard mall fare.

    The grand opening of this store in Queens Center comes on the heels of last month’s grand opening of Apple’s Upper East Side location in the city. The upcoming grand opening will also mark Apple’s eight store in New York City, joining the Upper East side spot, locations in the city on Fifth Avenue, Grand Central, SoHo and the Upper West Side along with locations in the borough of Staten Island.

    We’ll have to see how this store pans out for Apple and if the Cupertino California company has any other retail plans for New York City.
