Outlet likely to miss Black Friday
Apple's new Grand Central Terminal store in New York City will actually miss Black Friday, contrary to rumors, construction workers on the project suggest. "It won't be any time too soon," one of them is quoted as saying. "We still have a lot to do, so my guess is that it will be ready in December."
One rumor had the announcement of an opening date scheduled for today. Apple may indeed have been eager to have the store ready for Black Friday, since the event is the busiest shopping day of the year, and Grand Central is flooded by approximately 750,000 visitors daily. On top of this Apple is thought to be paying over $1 million a year in rent, which it will probably want to recoup as soon as possible.
