Apple stores headed to casino resorts?

Apple stores in casinos

Apple's stores are surfacing internationally, both as stand-alone stores, and as mall boutiques, but new reports suggest that casino resorts are also on the list for Apple store destinations. According to ifoAppleStore, two new locations are in progress, one in the Forum Shops at Ceaser's Palace in Nevada, and the other at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods, Connecticut. Las Vegas residents have spotted a large barricade, titled with the words "Apple, Coming Summer 2008" in large print in the far west side of the Strip.

The validity of the Foxwoods location is currently in question, however, as the webpage containing the information is not available any longer. Management for the Foxwoods hotel and casino later said that the location was to be a reseller, not an official store. Further adding to the confusion was the mention of an "Apple Retail Store Genius Bar", and a rather Apple-sounding description of the store, rather than that of a reseller.

    Foxwoods

    They do have Apple computers on sale at Foxwoods, in a store where you can redeem your Wampum points. However, there is BIG TIME price inflation if you pay cash. An Apple TV box has a price tag of $525 on it. Now that's a markup!

    apple is conservative

    And they say Apple is too liberal. Look - they are embracing an opportunity purely based on profit, without those pesky morals stopping them.

    With Foxwoods...

    With the addition of Foxwoods this will make 4 stores in CT, a state of 5,009 square miles. Seems a heady concentration of Apple stores rivaled only by Apple store population density in southern CA.

    Kinda weird for a NYC bedroom / pit stop between NYC & Boston state.

    lotsa money in Connecticut, maybe that is why

    (plus lotsa smart folks if there are that many Apple users!)
