Columbia, South Carolina on track to get first Apple Store

updated 03:28 pm EST, Wed November 13, 2013

Hiring already underway for retail jobs

Apple has started hiring for the first Apple Store in Columbia, South Carolina, notes local TV station WLTX. 13 job openings have appeared, although Apple has refused to confirm or deny any plans for a store. The company typically avoids announcing Apple Stores until construction facades are in place, but there have been exceptions in the past.

At the moment, Columbia residents wanting to visit an Apple Store have no choice but to drive to Charleston or shops in Georgia and North Carolina. There are third-party resale and repair outfits in Columbia however, and people can of course shop or get support from Apple online. It's unclear when the official Apple location will open; given the company's usual hiring practices, the date is likely mid- to late 2014.

    The Apple Store in Greenville, SC is also a destination option for Columbia residents. I'd imagine this new store will be built in the Village at Sandhill, the newest & most popular mall in the region.
