The iconic Fifth Avenue Apple Store is going to be closed soon, though don’t worry, it’s not like Apple is giving up on the location. It’s merely closing the store temporarily to carry out some renovations. In the meantime it’ll shift the store staff to another location so that business as usual can proceed. Once the renovations are done the company is going to reopen its flagship store on New York’s Fifth Avenue. The store was last closed for renovations back in 2011.
The Associated Press reports that Apple will soon close the Fifth Avenue store for renovations. It will be relocating to the FAO Schwartz toy store in the General Motors Building which is going to be vacated soon.
It’s not mentioned in the report how much time the company needs to make renovations to the Fifth Avenue store, which is not only among the most profitable stores that Apple runs, but is also a tourist attraction and visitors will certainly not like the fact that they can’t go in and see what has now become a must-see sight in New York City.
Those who just want to buy a product or get some help will have to head to FAO Schwartz for the time being, which is vacating its ground-level store in the General Motors Building next month. This location is merely steps away from the Apple Store on 58th Street and Fifth Avenue.
