Apple's New York City retail stores will be closing this weekend ahead of Hurricane Irene's possible landfall over the city. NYC's mass transit system is shutting down by noon on Saturday, which will make it extremely difficult for both employees and customers to get to the stores.
Employees who answered the phone at SoHo, Upper West Side, West 14th Street, and Staten Island confirmed that those stores will be closed all day on Saturday and Sunday.
A decision has reportedly not been made about the Fifth Avenue location, which is famously open 24/7/365.
