Per MacNN (http://www.macnn.com/news.php?id=18269):

A new Apple retail outlet is among the stores planned for the new "Short Pump Town Center (http://macnn.com/rd.php?id=4184)" mall in Richmond, Virginia. The mall, which was described by a local MacNN reader as "upscale" is expected to open this Fall. Other stores include Nordstrom, Crate & Barrel, and Pottery Barn.

I'm in Falls Church. Anybody wanna car pool to the opening? :D

Clarendon is probably even closer, but what's so special about a grand openning? The stores are nice, but do they give away anything special?

There's going to be an Apple Store in Hawaii!!!!!!!!!

I was at Ala Moana Center yesterday and I saw the area blocked off with black walls and a apple logo with www.apple.com on the bottom.

I can't wait!

I always wanted one to open up in Hawaii but I didn't think they would open one up here so quickly.

The Sacramento Bee reports that Apple will open a new retail store at Sacramento's Arden Fair Mall this spring. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment on unannounced store openings, but a senior manager at the mall confirmed Apple had signed papers to move into 3,600 square feet previously occupied by the jeweler Bailey, Banks & Biddle. He said Apple would likely move in after renovations are completed sometime in May. Arden Fair's Web site currently lists Apple as a tenant at the second-floor location in the middle of the mall near Nordstrom.

Ditto. I can't complain though. There are two within a days drive - but I sure wish there was one closer. But, I don't want my local retailer to go out of bussiness. :o

When will there be an Apple Store somewhere in Europe? If they would open one in Paris, I'll check it out! Or Dusseldorf, or London.... Amsterdam (best, ofcourse :D )....
