Apple store in upscale Greenwich, Conn., to open SaturdayConstruction continues at the Greenwich, Conn., Apple store as crews rush to complete the structure in time for the grand opening this Saturday.
Apple announced in a press release Tuesday that the Greenwich Avenue store will open to the public at 10 a.m. this Saturday, Nov. 21. The store is located at 356 Greenwich Avenue in the Connecticut city. This Saturday will also represent the grand opening of the new Apple store in Nashua, New Hampshire at Pheasant Lane Mall, 301 Daniel Webster Highway.
In preparation for Saturday's opening in Greenwich, crews were hard at work Tuesday on the location. It was roped off with caution tape and had a number of construction workers and heavy equipment on site, working to meet the looming deadline.
The new store planned for the U.S. hedge fund capital is located in a pricey destination home to many shops and restaurants. AppleInsider also had exclusive photos of the store's construction in September.
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.
The new location will be the fourth Apple Retail Store in Connecticut. The existing three are located in Danbury, at the Danbury Fair Mall; in Farmington, at Westfarms Mall; and at the Stamford Town Center in Stamford.
