Grand Central Terminal store opening delayed, say workers

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.

    Misleading headline

    Your headline is decidedly misleading - seeing as Apple never disclosed an opening date for the Grand Central store, a "delay" isn't technically possible. Even the construction worker interviewed in the original Mashable article didn't use the word delayed.

    Get with it!

    A more appropriate headline for your article is "Contrary to Black Friday Rumors, Grand Central Store On Track For December Opening" or something like that.

    Enjoy.............G
