Apple begins work on first Maine retail store

updated 09:45 am EDT, Wed August 27, 2008

First Maine Apple Store

Construction has begun on Apple's first retail store in the state of Maine, separate facts reveal. Confirming rumors from April, the Maine Mall in South Portland now lists Apple in its store directory, with an opening timeframe set for "Fall '08." The store may easily finish construction before October however, as a MacNN reader has taken photos of a facade already in place within the mall. Apple Stores tend to be completed within weeks of such facades being erected.

While Maine has gone a long time without an Apple Store, some have expressed worries that the South Portland store could disrupt the current reseller market, affecting both small business owners and larger chains such as Best Buy. One such Best Buy outlet is located directly within the Maine Mall.
