Apple to open retail store in U.S. hedge fund capital (photos)Apple has begun construction of a new retail store along the upscale Greenwich Avenue in Connecticut, and AppleInsider has exclusive photos of the new location.
The classy, pricey destination is home to many shops and restaurants, and Apple intends to join their ranks in the near future. Photos provided to AppleInsider show that a location at 356 Greenwich Ave. is currently under construction.
Crates spotted outside the location by reader José Cerritelli bear Apple's name, as well as that of Kikukawa, maker of stainless steel panels used in Apple Retail Stores. Similar crates can be found at other stores under construction.
The boxes were stacked in front of an older brick building along Greenwich Avenue, next to Rinfret Home & Garden.
Greenwich is a small town well-known for being home to a large number of investment hedge funds. Its estimated population as of 2002 was 61,784.
There are currently three Apple Retail Stores in Connecticut: in Danbury, at the Danbury Fair Mall; in Farmington, at Westfarms Mall; and at the Stamford Town Center in Stamford.
