Apple Store Coming to the Quakerbridge Mall?

AppleA handful of websites that cover Apple, Inc. have reported that the company has been advertising jobs for a Princeton retail location, most likely for a future store at the Quakerbridge Mall in Lawrence.

Speculation is that the Apple Store will be located in space across from the Lord & Taylor store, and that, based on the hiring schedule posted on the Apple job site,  the store open this summer.

Planet Princeton was told by a Lawrence official back in the fall that a map for the redesigned mall showed an Apple Retail Store indie the mall, but a representative for the Simon Property Group, the company that owns the mall, would not confirm it at the time.

A Simon representative who was contacted today would not confirm whether Apple will be a tenant and said any announcement would come from Apple, not the mall management company. Apple has retails stores in the region at the Menlo Park Mall, Freehold Raceway Mall and Bridgewater Commons Mall.

One of the long-known criteria for evaluating future Apple retail store locations is a proximity to a institution of higher learning. The Quakerbridge Mall is about six miles from downtown Princeton and Princeton University. The region is host to several international companies, including Dow Jones, Johnson & Johnson, Merrill Lynch and Bristol-Meyers Squibb.

    Had my iPhone swapped out tonight at the Freehold store, and the Apple Genius told me the QB mall store was opening in June.

    I know for a fact it is coming to the mall and it will be near lord and taylor they knew the location in 2012

  • Creative Computing on Route 206 N in Skillman, NJ has been selling and servicing Apple products for years. http://www.creativecomputing.com/

    I’ve never needed to go to Freehold.

  • Now I won’t have to go out to Freehold…yay. I have been happy with the upgraded stores at QB and new stores like Sephora, H&M etc….yes we definitely need an Apple Store…very exciting news hope it becomes a reality. I use all Apple products so this would be very helpful indeed!

  • I’m concerned about what this might do for the only Apple retailer, Creative Computing, that has served this area for decades. Creative Computing is a local business located on Route 206 North in Skillman.

    Bring it on!!!!!
