Grand Opening for New Utah Apple Store Coming Friday Alongside iPhone Launches




Apple's newest retail store in Station Park near Salt Lake City, Utah is set to open on Friday, September 20, the same day that Apple will begin selling its iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in stores.

Located in Farmington, Utah, Station Park is an outdoor shopping mall that features a number of upscale retail stores. The Apple Store, which spans approximately 10,000 square-feet, is located in the middle of the mall next to the H&M clothing store.

While store openings normally begin at 10:00 AM, the new store will open its doors at 8:00 AM in order to begin selling Apple's iPhones. The company will likely also be handing out commemorative T-shirts to the first 1,000 customers to visit the store.

Customers can begin making reservations for workshops and Genius Bar appointments af the Park Station location today.

Dang it, I got really excited until it said Farmington! Oh well, maybe this will help clear out the stores in Fashion Place and City Creek so I don't have to spend the night in line.

Obviously the people that live up there dissagree with you.

Provo has quite good access to Apple products just not an official Apple Store.
* BYU Book store (will sell to non students at regular price)
* UVU Book store (will sell to non students at regular price)
* Simply Mac (even if their sevice, and business practices are aweful.)
* Is Mac Docs still around?
* Att/Verizon/T-Mobile/Sprint/Walmart/Target
* Best Buy


Here are the places I think still need a store
* Provo Area
* Ogden Area
* Lehi/American Fork area

Will a Mac use any wifi signal even if the internet service is not compatible with i

I have a Mac and a PC. I am planning to change my internet service to another, but the service I want says that it is only compatible with PC's. The question is if I buy a router and hook it up to the modem will the Mac get the WiFi signal and be able to use it regardless of the service??

No. Apple is a bunch of Ute Fans, so you might try asking next week

Utah County was set up to have the first store in Utah. BYU campus in fact. Apple wanted to own the property the store sat on and that was the deal breaker.
