Apple looking for Syracuse, NY retail location

Apple store in Syracuse

Apple may be looking to in Syracuse, NY, according to The Post-Standard: " Apple and Carousel aren't confirming it, but apparently talks are serious again and might mean an Apple-owned store at the mall is imminent. The prime location? Near the mall's food court. Talk about Apple has heated up in retail and other circles recently. It even heated up in this space, as I recently told you of Apple's on-again, off-again talks with Carousel owner The Pyramid Cos. to bring a store to Syracuse. Pyramid has Apple stores at its malls in Albany, Buffalo and West Nyack."

    About time

    They've had job postings on Apple's website for ages. As it stands now, it's either a three-hour drive to Buffalo or a three hour drive to Albany. What a choice...

    Forget an Apple Store

    If it were me, I'd hold out for a Fry's. From what I hear, crappy service, but from what I've seen, good prices and a lot more variety than an Apple Store.

    I've visited the Apple Store in SoHo. It was a snoozer.

    Makes sense

    It makes sense for Apple to open a store at what is supposed to become DestiNY. Pyramid claims they can create a major tourist center on the shores of the most polluted lake in the country. Maybe Bob Congel hopes some of Steve's reality distortion field will rub off.

    re: Frys

    Frys would have a great distance to cover, to get to upstate NY.

    re: Rochester: you're only an hour and change from Buffalo :) - We're three hours from Buffalo and about the same from Albany :)

    Plus, there's DestiNY USA to consider :)

    Re: Rochester

    Rochester's problem is not it's size but that it lacks a high profile mall. Buffalo got one of the first rounds of Apple stores not because the metro area is big, although it is home to about 1.2 million, but because the Walden Galleria draws in a fair amount of visitors from other areas, including Rochester, Jamestown, even Erie, PA and Hamilton, Ontario, and it's conspicuously located right off of I-90 in a relatively centralized location in the middle suburb of Cheektowaga.

    There's Eastview Mall in Rochester. I think it's trying to become "high profile", but somehow that got translated to "pretentious"...
