Station officials prep for press, large crowds

Apple will officially unveil its Grand Central Terminal store on December 9th, the New York Post claims to have learned. Apple and railroad officials are said to be preparing a "splashy media event" for the premiere. The latter party is "making plans for a lot of press and accommodating Apple's own people," a source says, while the Post elaborates that officials are preparing for swarms of Apple fans that will only compound problems caused by the terminal's normal high traffic.

The paper says it is unknown whether December 9th will represent the actual opening or just a VIP-only event. In the latter case, an official opening is expected to take place the next day. Apple regularly does press previews of stores a day or more prior to their actual launch, if mainly for high-profile outlets.

The Post's claim backs up word from construction workers who recently said they didn't expect the store to be ready until December. Prior to then many had expected the shop to be ready by Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year. Apple tends to schedule store debuts to meet the Black Friday deadline.
