Apple begins hiring for long-awaited Brooklyn store, likely opening this year

Apple is now hiring retail workers for its first store in Brooklyn , suggesting that the company's anticipated project in New York City's most populous borough will open its doors by the end of the year.

The listings cover a full gamut of Apple Store positions, from clerks through to store leaders and senior management, MacRumors noted this week. Apple only tends to post jobs for an upcoming store once a grand opening is slated within the next several months.

Apple signed a long-term lease for 247 Bedford Ave. in 2014, and renovations began in 2015. As usual, Apple has not explicitly identified itself as the party working on the space, though it might choose to put up a barrier with promotional art once the store is closer to completion.

New York City is already home to several Apple Stores, but most of those —six —are in the borough of Manhattan. Queens and Staten Island have one outlet each, making Brooklyn an even more conspicuous omission given its size, trendiness, and relative affluence.

If the Brooklyn location does open by the end of the year, it will likely do so before the end of November at the latest, since Apple tends to skew openings before Black Friday shopping. There have been occasional exceptions.
