Greensboro on Feb. 21

Apple's retail shop in Greensboro, North Carolina will open on February 21st, barring complications, a marketing assistant for the Friendly Center shopping complex is said to inform. The store will be located between Williams-Sonoma and Anthropologie on Avondale, and should not only be the first Apple Store in Greensboro, but the largest to date in North Carolina. The outlet has experienced a number of setbacks on the way to completion.

Job listings for a store were first revealed in November of 2007, but at the time, a mall expansion is said to have convinced Apple to wait for a better space. More recently the company is rumored to have fought with Friendly Center, which argued that Apple should have no special privilege in securing premium real estate. Construction on a final Greensboro location appears to have begun in January.
