now i know everyone thinks they should have an apple store in their neighborhood, but i really think apple would do good up here. Saginaw, Michigan is a big enough city, and already has a very nice mall where A&f resides, Gap, and most of apples sister stores (from ifoapplestore.com) the mall in saginaw is very nice, but the area around it is pretty crummy.. Traverse City, Michigan would also be a very good area. the population of this city balloons in the summer months, and makes the mall very crowded. The mall is a bit high scale, very clean, and very safe. all of the best buys from the detroit apple stores and up have the apple booth things, and they are always packed. literally packed. I think it would be very wise for apple to open a small boutique style store around northern michigan how about outlet stores? People drive from Detroit to go to Tanger Outlets in West Branch, and Prime Outlets in birch run. These centers are always packed all year. Would apple ever open an outlet store to sell out old items?
