It appears that Apple isn’t satisfied with the progress on the Grand Central Apple Store and is postponing the opening at least a week perhaps more. Clearly, Apple would have preferred to have another huge venue open for Black Friday but we’ve been told by a GC Apple employee today that they’ve been told to continue working at other New York Area Apple Stores during Black Friday weekend.
Last weekend, a group of employees was told that the opening announcement was scheduled for today and Apple was going to try to open for Black Friday.
On the other hand, it is good to have an abundance of Apple Store workers on hand at the other NYC Apple Stores for the busiest shopping weekend of the year.
We’re sorry we got your hopes up and we’re still hoping to see the store open next week.
