    I today found out Apple is going to open a 2 story retail store in Fair Oaks Mall in Fairfax, VA? I wanted to know if anyone knew when it is set to open. I found out today I'm not sure if it's old news though.

    That's great news. That's about 2-3 miles from here. Versus 10 miles to Tysons.

    Cool. :cool:

    Plus the Tysons store is always so packed, at least whenever I'm there.

    Yes, definitely. Especially on weekend. Before the holidays, I went there to get a couple iPods and the line was out the door into the mall. Ridiculous.

    This will be good, especially if they make it a big bigger than Tysons.

    Yeah Tysons is always packed..I've been there several times. I went today, saw the sign from far away. I'm going again this weekend and I will ask customer service when it is set to open. It is being built right near the Starbucks center area. Here is the website that says that it is really happening, directly from Apple:

    It says Fair Oaks Mall, Fairfax, VA on the bottom right side in the blue box.
    They are currently hiring, so I think it will open no later than this summer!

    Bah!! Another suburban outpost. That's what, 3 or 4 in N. VA plus 2 in Bethesda? When are they going to open one in DC? G-town would be prime for an Apple store.
