Apple Store opens in FL
The Orlando area gets its third Apple Store as a suburban location opens Saturday morning. The Altamonte Springs Apple Store includes a Genius Bar, Business Services, Workshops, Personal Shoppers, One-to-One training and Youth Programs. Apple is giving free T-shirts to the first 1000 visitors. According to The Orlando Sentinel the store occupies 5,500 square feet at the Altamonte Mall.
The new store joins two others in Orlando, and brings the total number of Apple Stores statewide to 15. In its recent quarterly conference call, Apple said it expects to have 242 stores operating worldwide by year's end -- up from 216 in July.
