Apple store opening in Williamsburg
Gothamist reports about an Apple store moving in to the corner of North 3rd Street and Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, taking over the spaces that were previously the Bagel Store and King’s Pharmacy:
The 20,000-square-foot space is currently undergoing a gut renovation. Cuozzo reports that the building will be “getting a whole new look, featuring dramatic, arched windows,” and his sources say the store will open in spring of 2015.
The location is conveniently located across from Duane Reade and the future Whole Foods site, and is just a short walk from J. Crew, Starbucks, and Urban Outfitters. A Buy n Large is expected to open soon in the space currently occupied by the Turkey’s Nest.
Peeking through the construction barriers reveals it’s still mostly in the rubble stage right now. Well, at least you won’t have to go all the way to Manhattan to replace your broken screen (oh wait, they don’t do that) (actually, I guess they do now).
Oh, and Apple stores in Manhattan regularly host cultural events — concerts included, so we can say this doubles as the opening of a shiny, new Williamsburg venue, to replace all those dirty ones that will be closed by then.
