    News of a much needed new Apple Store in Birmingham. They are planning to take over the old Midland bank building in New Street Birmingham because the current one in located in the Bullring is much too small for the amount of daily traffic it's now getting.

    It's currently a Waterstones book store but it looks ideal for an Apple Store conversion.

    Looks like it could be an awesome location for an Apple store

    I tend to go to the Solihull or Trafford centre stores as they're easier to get to by car (particularly with the ridiculous amount of roadworks going on in Birmingham at the moment), but would definitely be tempted back to Birmingham by a flagship conversion of that brilliant old building

    I'll have to be in stealth mode to get my free t-shirt (I assume they still do that?)

    I hope so, my Bullring and Touchwood t-shirts have long gone well beyond their useful life.
