Readers: more retail Apple Stores coming

MacNN readers continue to provide notes on upcoming openings of new retail Apple Stores, which have yet to be announced on Apple's Retail Website.

[Anonymous] "Another Apple Store will be opening up in late March/Early April in the Phoenix Arizona area. This store is located in the Biltmore Fashion Park, which is in the center of Phoenix's upper class retail district.

[Dave Sawyer] "Apple is also hiring for a second Apple Store in Denver (Colorado). The new store will be in the Cherry Creek Mall area, either the mall itself (most likely) or the nearby retail area - the job listings aren't specific. The Cherry Creek mall and associated retail area are the most "upscale" retail area in the Denver Metro area, with stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Neimann Marcus, Bang and Olufsen, Bose, and other shops aimed at affluent consumers. The Cherry Creek Mall is also Denver's No. 1 tourist destination. All in all, a good location for Apple."
