Apple Store ABQ Uptown coming to Albuquerque, NM this fall

In May, we reported that several job listings had appeared on for positions in an Apple Retail Store slated for the ABQ Uptown “shopping destination” that’s under development in Albuquerque, New Mexico. (Note: “ABQ” is the code for the city’s airport and also a colloquialism for the city.) Albuquerque straddles the Rio Grande and is the largest city in the state of New Mexico. The city proper had a total population of 448,607 (as of the 2000 census) and metropolitan area has a population of approximately 715,000 and includes the city of Rio Rancho, the third-largest and fastest-growing city in New Mexico and one of the fastest growing cities in the United States.

Apple currently does not have any retail stores in the state of New Mexico, but they will soon. And ABQ Uptown PDF clearly shows an Apple Computer, Inc. logo for an upcoming store (middle building, on the east row of stores) here.

Look for Apple to celebrate the store’s grand opening on or around November 4th.
