Nevada, Miss. Apple Stores
Apple has announced that two new retail stores will be opening on August 30th. The Renaissance at Colony Park location will open in Ridgeland, Mississippi, becoming the first Apple Store in its state. A second location, The Forum Shops, will open in Las Vegas, right on Las Vegas Boulevard. This will be the fourth Apple Store located in Nevada.
The shops should feature all of Apple's normal retail services, such as a Genius Bar, workshops, business services and personal shoppers. In a recent quarterly conference call, Apple said it hopes to have 242 stores open worldwide by the end of the year, up from 216 in July. To that end the company recently opened stores in Fort Worth, Texas and Altamonte Springs, Florida and appears to be preparing a third location for London, England.
