Store may alleviate traffic at other locations
The new Apple Store in Manhasset, New York is scheduled to have its grand opening this Saturday October 17th at 10 o'clock. Although the town only has a population of 8,300, the location seems ideal considering the area has an average household income of $125,240 per year --among the 10 highest incomes for any existing Apple Store Location, according to ifoAppleStore. The opening should also help to alleviate the heavy traffic in the three Apple Stores located on Long Island, the report said.
The store will be opening at the Americana Manhasset, an outdoor mall with a variety of street-level luxury retail stores as neighbors including Prada, Giorgio Armani, Louise Vuitton, and Ralph Lauren.
Apple demolished the former bank branch at the location at build a new all-steel, 4,000 square-foot store.
