A few weeks ago, The New York Observer gave us the heads up on a new retail build from Apple planned for Grand Central, New York. Little details were available on the planned store at the time, other than it was just that … planned.
This week however, CoM claims that the store is set become much more than just another Apple retail store. In fact, the real reason for Apple’s Grand Central Apple Store build they claim is that it will serve as a celebration of 10 years of Apple being active in retail. Moreover, according to rumors, the store is also set to steal the title of the recently opened store in Covent Garden, London, becoming the largest Apple Retail store in the world.
The Observer said Apple isn’t expected to take one of the traditional retail spaces, but will locate right in the terminal.
Our source suggested that Apple may be taking walls down — but didn’t elaborate.
The terminal sees more than 700,000 visitors a day, most heading for trains or subway. But about 250,000 come to look at Vanderbilt Hall or eat at the 35 restaurants, including the historic Oyster Bar on the lower level.
Its official name? – Apple Store, Grand Central.[CoM via MacStories]
