Apple on Tuesday announced that its two newest brick and mortar retail store locations will open this weekend. Apple retail stores will open in Houston, Texas and Manhattan Beach, Calif. on Saturday, July 30, 2005.
Apple Store The Woodlands opens up in The Woodlands shopping mall, located in The Woodlands, Texas — a large planned community located just north of Houston itself. The shopping plaza features more than 200 popular stores, and the Apple Store is on the first floor near Sears.
Apple Store Manhattan Village opens up in Manhattan Beach, Calif. at 3200 Sepulveda Blvd. Located in the Manhattan Village mall, the Apple Store is located near Islands Restaurant in the North Wing of the mall.
As is customary with new store openings, both stores will be giving away free commemorative t-shirts to the first visitors of the stores, and both stores will also feature a “Grand Opening Sweepstakes” to win a Digital Lifestyle Collection that includes an iMac, iPod mini, Canon PowerShot digital camera, Canon ZR100 digital camcorder and Epson Stylus R200 inkjet printer.
