Target is looking to capitalize on the hot trend of home goods and furnishings with their newest retail concept, a two story pop-up store in the middle of Grand Central Station.
Grand Central Terminal is about to become a high-tech hub. Apple is opening its fifth Manhattan store in the bustling midtown landmark on Friday, aiming to capture commuters’ dollars.
Apple on Monday officially announced that its next retail store, in New York’s Grand Central Station, will open at 10am on Friday, Dec. 9. The store is officially located at 45 Grand Central Terminal. It will be housed on the east balcony of the main terminal, in the space previously occupied by the restaurant Metrazur.
The store, Apple’s fifth in Manhattan, will be one of the company’s biggest in the world, taking up some 23,000 square feet in the highly trafficked terminal. (Up to 700,000 commuters trek through every day.) The deal was finalized this summer.
