Apple Abandons Grand Central Station Store Plans

Apple has apparently dropped its plans to build a retail store in New York City’s Grand Central Station. This latest rumor follows a rumor from early February claiming was looking into opening a store in the iconic Manhattan location.

Apple, just not in Grand Central Station

Word of Apple’s change of heart comes via “a source close to the M.T.A.” that’s apparently privy to the Mac and iPhone maker’s plans, according to The Observer.

The original report claiming Apple wanted to set up shop in Grand Central Station was built on word from an anonymous source, along with real estate companies that deal with both entities failing to deny the reports.

A presence in Grand Central Station would put Apple in yet another heavy traffic location, and would be convenient for travelers. For now, however, it appears Apple is mothballing the idea.
