Expect 67th Street Apple Store to Open by Thanksgiving

The construction site at the northwest corner of 67th Street and Broadway will be an Apple Store by Thanksgiving, construction workers at the site said today.
A source in the investment community familiar with the company also told me that Apple has begun talking to employees at its other stores to see if they are interested in managerial positions at the new store. It’s unclear whether the company has started a formal hiring process. Apple didn’t return a phone call, and the company hasn’t even acknowledged that it’s opening a store at the location. Its online job site doesn’t list an Upper West Side location. The investment source thinks Apple will likely need to hire at least 100 people for the new location, fewer than the 5th Avenue Store but about as many as the Soho store.
