Locations of Mystery Job Listings Are Revealed

June 3, 2013

Tipsters have dug out the exact locations of two future Apple retail stores, after vague job listings were posted last month for stores in Virginia and Utah. The locations are in addition to a future store previously identified in New Jersey, close to Princeton University. The three stores will be among fewer than 10 new stores opening in the United States during fiscal 2013. Most of the 40 new stores announced for this year will be located outside the United States, company officials have said. The two newest job listings appeared May 21st on Apple’s Web site. The first was listed as “Salt Lake City,” although tipsters say it’s really located in the northern suburb of Farmington, at the Station Park shopping mall alongside Interstate 15. Besides retail space, the development includes a hotel, multi-screen cinema and several restaurants. The second job listing was posted as “Manassas, Virginia.” In fact, the store will be in the city of Woodbridge, at the new Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center mall. The developer is still adding tenants to the mall, but so far has signed Wegman’s grocery, REI and several other upscale retailers. The third store identified earlier will be located at the Quaker Bridge Mall, about five miles from the campus of Princeton University (NJ). A black construction barricade is already up at the mall, next to the Ann Taylor store. Based on the timing of the job postings, all three stores will open before November.

In past years, Apple’s job listings included not only the city and state of the future store, but the name of the shopping mall or street where the store would be located. About a year ago, the listings no longer listed the shopping mall, and sometime not even the city of the future store. That change has meant that it takes more digging from more sources to determine the actual location of future stores.

For both of these job listings, the listed city is not the actual store location, but is a city nearby. It’s not clear if Apple is purposely using this technique to obscure the actual locations of its future stores, or if the job listing locations are intended as regions.

The future Apple store at Station Park will reportedly be next to the H&M store that opened last month. If so, the space covers about 10,000 square-feet.

Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center is an outdoor mall that is still adding new tenants. The store will be to the left of the Starbucks.

The Apple store will be on the lower level of the mall, to the left of the Motherhood Maternity store.

The store at Potomac Town Center will be next to the Starbucks and is rumored to be opening in August.

Interesting to note that the Apple store in Short Pump near Richmond, va is right next to a very large J Jill which is moving to a different location in the mall. Might make a nice expansion to one of the most crowded stores.

Apple purportedly is scouting a new Gulf Coast location.
