Apple to open its first store in borough

By Bill Parry

Apple is coming to Queens.

The technology giant is currently constructing its first retail outlet in the borough on the second floor of the Queens Center Mall, at 90-15 Queens Blvd., according to someone familiar with site.

The new Apple Store will be the company’s largest in a New York mall and could open later this year. A spokesman for Queens Center, the largest mall in the borough with nearly 1 million square-feet of retail space, refused to comment.

Apple, the first U.S. company valued at over $700 billion, whose spokeswoman also refused to comment, will also expand to Brooklyn and Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
