Caesar's Palace store?
The construction of an Apple Store at the Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas may be in doubt, a new report suggests. The outlet would supposedly be opened in the casino's Forum Shops section, next to an aquarium and an Xpress clothing store; while an earlier photo clearly showed the text "Apple Coming Summer 2008" on a facade, a new image shows no such signs. Moreover, a visitor claims that behind the facade are the traces of another clothing store, whether a new, existing or previous one. No evidence of construction is said to be present.
Why Caesar's Palace would install the signs and then remove them is unclear. Apple may have changed its mind about building at the location; alternately, the company could be delaying the store's launch, or the matter could be an error on the part of the casino.
