An Apple a day won’t keep the crowds away from the Queens Center mall this weekend.
The borough’s first Apple Store is set to open at the Elmhurst shopping center on Saturday, July 11 at 10 a.m., according to the tech brand.
The news of the official debut date comes following a report earlier in the year of Apple opening a location on the mall’s second floor.
Customers who come to the grand opening will not only get to try out the latest Apple products, but the first 1,000 customers in the door will also receive a free commemorative T-shirt.
The new store, according to Apple’s website, will include a Genius Bar, as well as other features, such as workshops, that can be found at many of its other locations.
According to the Daily News, the store will be one of the largest in a New York mall and one of the company’s most diverse, with more than 130 staff members who will be speaking 24 languages other than English. Two-thirds of the staff will be bilingual.
