The new Apple Store will open at Quaker Bridge Mall on Saturday, June 29 at 10 a.m., company officials announced Tuesday.
The store will give away free commemorative T-shirts to the first 1,000 customers.
Now Mac enthusiasts won’t have to make the trek to Freehold or Bridgewater, both at least a 30-minute drive away.
The Apple Store may be the most anticipated store opening at the renovated mall on Route 1. For months, rumors swirled that a Mac-centric store was coming, but Apple officials declined to confirm the rumor.
Then on May 30, the mall posted a photo on its Facebook page
It was shortly after 4 p.m. when someone managing the Mall's Facebook account posted a photo of the new store location inside the mall along with the message, "Guess who is coming to Quaker Bridge Mall!?"
