Olympic Venue Apple Store Opens in Sept.

March 31, 2011

The future Apple retail store outside London that’s a hop-skip-and-jump from the 2012 Olympic Games site will open this September, when the huge Westfield Stratford City mall itself holds its grand opening. The $3 billion mall complex will include 300 shops, a cinema, restaurants and other attractions, along with a “lifestyle street” arranged into districts. The mall is about five miles east of city center London, and adjacent to the major venues for the Games, including the stadium, aquatic center, Olympic Village and press center. Job listings were posted last week for the future store, corresponding to the planned opening of the mall. It’s not known where in the multi-level mall the Apple store will be located.

It’s about five miles, and it’s to the east (maybe ENE) of the City not west.
