Tennessee Wins 2012 Apple Store Lottery Slot

January 17, 2012

The state of Tennessee has reportedly won a ticket in Apple’s 2012 retail store lottery, with the selection of the Cool Springs Galleria for a store south of Nashville. Apple executives have said the company will open about 40 stores during fiscal 2012, with only about 10 lucky locations within the United States. According to the Cool Springs News, tipsters say that existing tenant Abercrombie will vacate space #1585 within a week. Mall manager CBL & Associates Properties Inc. reportedly declined to renew Abercrombie’s lease, opting to bring Apple to the mall. By April, construction will begin on installing an Apple store within the 8,208 square-foot space. The store, sporting an 47-foot wide storefront and a wider interior, could open by September. The mall sits alongside Interstate 65, and within an upscale region at the top end of Apple’s usual average household income demographic—over $114,000.

A future Apple store will occupy space #1585, including a portion of the former Abercrombie store space, giving the Apple 8,208 s.f. total. The storefront will be 47 feet wide, but deeper into the store the width is 83 feet. The store is 115 feet deep.
