“Apple’s new store on New York City’s Upper West Side opened at 10 a.m. on Nov. 14. Perhaps buoyed by strong earnings results over the past several quarters despite the economic recession, Apple is engaging in an aggressive retail strategy that will see 40 to 50 stores opening worldwide in 2010, according to published reports,” eWeek reports.
“Like Apple’s flagship location on Fifth Avenue, the Upper West Side storefront features a minimalist design, a substantial underground section and a variety of the latest Apple products on display, such as the newly tweaked MacBooks and 21.5-inch iMacs,” eWeek reports. “Snapped over the few hours following the store’s opening, the following image gallery shows how Apple’s brand is capable of pulling in crowds, even without any special offers or promotions.”
