Apple Store Coming to Sarasota
It was announced in the paper today, November 7,2013 that an Apple Store will be coming to Sarasota. This has been a long awaited and much anticipated addition to Sarasota. Back in November of 2011 it was reported that the Apple Store was coming to the Southgate Mall after their renovations. Well we all waited and waited and waited.....
The wait is over.
Now comes the most recent news as it was reported in our local paper the Sarasota Herld-Tribune today by Justine Griffin.
Apple is Opening a Store at the new Mall at University Town Center which is currently under construction and is due to open in the fall of 2014. The University Town Center is a $315 million upscale mall that is under construction at the University Park Exit on I-75 next to the new World Class Benderson Rowing Park. Other national stores and restaurants that will be coming to University Town Center include Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's, Dillard's American Eagle Outfitters, the Cheesecake Factory, Brio Tuscan Grille and Seasons 52. Nordstrom Rack has just opened a new store across the street from the new mall next to Total Wines.
Sarasota has seen the addition of some very popular retailers this past year including Costco's in the Palmer Ranch area, Trader Joe's which opened on S. Tamiami Trail near Bee Ridge Road, P.F. Chang's, and Chipotle which now has two locations in Sarasota.
In the mean time we have some excellant Apple Resellers which include Computer Advantage and Apple Core located on Clark Road.
