“California-based technology giant Apple Inc. started recruiting workers for a King Street retail store on its Web site last week. Steve Jobs & Co. is seeking applicants who ‘have the potential to develop the retail sales and customer service skills that are the heart and soul of the Apple Store,” The Post and Courier reports.
“At the same time, city planners fielded a request to alter the storefront at 301 King St. That’s the same property, formerly shared by Granny’s Goodies thrift shop and Cumberland’s nightclub, that Apple architects were looking at a few weeks ago,” The Post and Courier reports.
“Richard Faenza, the owner of 301 King, said Friday that no one has inked a lease on the building yet, though he acknowledged that Apple came knocking a few weeks ago. It’s a safe bet that Apple required Faenza to sign a confidentiality agreement, but if it’s really interesting in keeping its cards close to its chest, Apple should get its HR people connected with its PR people, not to mention its architects,” The Post and Courier reports.
