Apple Grand Central Store to Open Soon

Earlier this year, it was  confirmed  that Apple is opening a new store in New York’s Grand Central soon, and it  looks absolutely  stunning.  The store is expected to occupy 23,000 feet (crazy!). It is also expected to generate half-a-billion in sales a year!

Today, Apple has sent a photo of a new display outside the still-under construction store to Gothamist, which says:  “Apple Store. Grand Central. Arriving Soon.” An anonymous source told the  New York Post  that the store is  on track  to open on Friday, Dec. 9. The report also suggested that a media event is being planned by Apple and railroad officials for that date,  though the initial opening could be a VIP-only event with a public grand opening on Saturday, Dec. 10. However, no official grand opening date has been given from Apple.

Apple reached a 10 year deal with the New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority in July for the space, and paid $5 million to buy  out the remaining eight years on Charlie Palmer’s Metrazur restaurant’s lease. The company is said to be paying anywhere from $800,000 to $1.1 million per year in rent for the location.
