Apple Set To Renovate The New York SoHo Store



photo_soho

Apple is going to renovate its SoHo store to increase its space in the next three months. This step is necessary because the SoHo store, opened in 2002, is the smallest Apple Store within Manhattan and it scarcely accommodates the thousands of customers every day. During the renovations, the SoHo Apple store will be relocated to a temporary location. There is no information about what exactly location Apple chose but it obviously will be somewhere within Manhattan. The renovations will apparently include reconfiguration of the first floor, but the glass staircase that was the first one in Apple’s store, won’t be changed.

Apple Stores May Get New Products Next Wednesday



whatisthat

9to5Mac reports Apple will be holding yet another overnight at their retail stores next Tuesday. It is also known that some stores already got new displays and unknown boxes.

Now that may mean nothing. It is probably that Apple just wants to bring and setup new displays in their stores because of its partnership with Teach for America Foundation. Besides that, lately weekly overnights became the usual thing for Apple.

On the other side Apple may prepare for unveiling new MacBook Airs. Or AirPort Extremes. Or Time Capsules. Or Mac minis. Or Mac Pros.
