The future Lincoln Park (Chicago) retail store will open soon, as announced by a leafy, autumn motif on the white construction barricade that now surrounds the property. The white barricade appeared over the last few days, decorated with “leaves” in the shape of the stem in Apple’s famous logo. The leaves are in various shades of green, red and yellow, signifying the fall season, and form the words, “Lincoln Park.” A sign at the triangular corner of North Clybourn Avenue and North Halsted Street announces, “A vibrant opening. Fall 2010.” The motif may signal the design of the commemorative T-shirts that are given out during the store’s grand opening. The store will resemble the Scottsdale Quarter (Arizona) and similar stores that have two large windows at both ends of a boxy space. The store was finished at least two months ago, but the replacement of several warped stainless steel panels and the renovation of the adjacent plaza and transit station have delayed the grand opening. The store will reportedly open in mid-October.
