Apple retail burglary

Many of Apple's retail stores are undergoing major renovations, construction on the new Boston store is progressing nicely, the company has promised to bring a new store to San Antonio, and burglars managed to make off with a load of stolen loot from a store in Missouri. The Country Club Plaza Apple Store in Kansas City, Missouri, was burglarized at around 3:38 a.m. Monday morning. Suspects reportedly broke the store's front window and made off with $17,000 worth of products which included eight notebooks, three iPods, and two iPhones. Local police are examining surveillance footage collected from the store, according to ifoAppleStore.com.

Renovations

Apple is planning more renovations in the coming weeks by switching floor plans and upgrading interiors to reflect the company's latest design plans. The Village Pointe store in Omaha, Nebraska is scheduled to close from August 20-24th for a floor plan change, as is the Ridgedale store in Minnetonka, Minnesota and the Burlingame store in Northern California. Renovations will include removing the rear sales counter and replacing it with a Genius Bar, as well as erecting display counters where the former Genius Bar resided.

More stores

Apple's Boylston Street Boston store is beginning to take shape after six months of construction, and ifoAppleStore.com is posting time-lapse movies from its Web cam as it records construction progress. The cam reveals the pouring of exterior concrete walls, as well as the installation of reinforcing steel for the interior walls of the future retail outlet.

The Cupertino-based company has also revealed that it plans to build a second Apple store in San Antonio, Texas. The company selected a location at the super-regional North Star Mall on the north side of the city, roughly 10 miles from the existing La Cantera store.

    Eh?

    C’mon, "burglerized" isn't a real word, you mean "burgled", surely!?

    look it up

    You're right, burglErized isn't a real word, but burglArized certainly is: bur·glar·ize [bur-gluh-rahyz] verb, -ized, -iz·ing. –verb (used with object) 1. to break into and steal from: Thieves burglarized the warehouse. –verb (used without object) 2. to commit burglary. Also, especially British, bur·glar·ise.

    And...

    When one of these idiots or their idiot friends takes it in for repair... they'll have a surprise. Don't you think Apple keeps track of these things?

    pshhh. repairs....

    it will probably be some shmuck from from the backwoods of kansas that buys one of these MBPs off the streets, then proceeds to use it as a tv dinner tray.

    wont even know it is a laptop until a few years from now.

    Valley Fair

    The store at Valley Fair in San Jose is also closed for reconstruction. They have a mini store right next door that will be open during construction (smart idea) and it is always packed. Glad to see they had a plan B, because that store is always the busiest one in the mall.
