Apple’s new hot Apple Store at the Queens Center shopping mall in New York City will open this Saturday, July 11, after the company confirmed plans that the store is finally finished.
The grand opening of Apple’s first-ever store in the borough of Queens was announced by the company this week, with the doors officially opening at 10 am on Saturday.
“We are really excited to bring our eighth store in NYC to Queens,” Jason Barlia, market director at Apple Retail, said in a statement to the New York Daily News. “When we saw this location it made a lot of sense.”
The new Apple store will be located on the second-floor of the Queens Center shopping mall and is said to be in prime traffic location. The store will have 130 members of staff who will speak 25 languages, with two-thirds of the staff being bilingual.
The Queens Center store will be Apple’s eighth in New York City, joining the Upper East Side spot, locations in Manhattan on Fifth Avenue, at Grand Central, in SoHo, on the Upper West Side, and in the borough of Staten Island.
