Apple May be Prepping New Minneapolis Store

Apple looks to be ramping up to open a new retail location in Minneapolis' Uptown neighborhood. The exact location of the new store isn't known yet, but could be on Hennepin Ave South, according to the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal.

The potential location at 3018 Hennepin Ave South was formerly the home of the Uptown Bar and Cafe. The location was purchased by Urban Anthology with plans to renovate it and open a two-story retail center.

Job listings for store manager and assistant store manager appeared on the Apple job Web site on January 13, but only list "Minnesota 55305" for the job location.

Apple hasn't officially announced a new store for Uptown, but could open a location as early as April if it really is planning on moving into the Urban Anthology location on Hennepin Ave South based on other retailer's plans.
