If you go job hunting on Apple.com/jobs, and you live in Colorado, you’ll be greeted by a bit of a surprise – There’s a new store on the horizon!

Colorado Springs, CO is on the board for an Apple Retail Store. This should be a welcome addition to the retail outlets, as I recall while waiting in line for the Park Meadows store opening, that several people drove the 50 miles from Colorado Springs to be there. So congrats guys, there are shiny things headed your way.

  1. And for those of you north of the border, there is also some job postings for an Apple store opening in Market Mall in Calgary, AB.

    Surprising; I would’ve thought it’d go in the new Chinook Mall expansion, but I guess they couldn’t wait for the construction to finish.

  2. Does anyone know the Colorado Springs store location and the opening date?

  3. I noticed a store next to the new JC Penney store on Powers Blvd. The windows are covered with paper with the Apple logo. I am a PC guy but it will be interesting to check out the Apple store. I do like there designs but I find there stuff a little too pricey. There computers aren’t that great for gaming either.

  4. Upon further investigation, it would appear this is a Mac Superstore opening up on Powers.

  5. My understanding is that the Colorado Springs store will be in The Promenade Shops at Briargate.

  6. The Apple Store in Colorado Springs is now open. It is located on the East side of North Academy Blvd., just north of Woodman and next door to Buffalo Wild Wings (7425 N. Academy Blvd).

  7. That is not an Apple store…..It’s called Simply Mac and I’m not sure what it is. When I talked to Apple (by phone) today they had never heard of it. I need to research them further to see if they are an AUTHORIZED warranty repair facility. I needed some work done on my MacBook Pro had considered going there but now I’m not sure.

  8. Simply Mac is only an authorized seller, not service location per http://www.apple.com/buy/locator/service. The only Colorado Springs authorized service provider is Voelker Research, 5026 N Academy Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO 80918

  9. Simply Mac actually kicks ass and MUCH better than Voelker in customer service……I actually think that Voelker is TRYING to go out of business their customer service is so horrendous. Rich is a good guy and if he’s persoally involved you’ll be ok….but typically you get his staff who should be shaking in their boots right now.

    Simply Mac so far has impressed me more than the apple stores in Denver and well those I still hold in high regard…just sometimes their staff is a bit undereducated. But regardless, yes, finally we’re getting real mac stores in this town. Downtown COS though should be the next step for any smart mac store. Powers zip codes are lower income and most of the higher income zipcodes on the west side won’t drive out there (like me) because if it’s going to take that long you might as well drive to Denver for more selection

  10. From what I’ve read on the internet and been told by a store clerk at the Promenade Shops at Briargate, the new Apple store is to be in the Promenade Shops. The location will be near Montana Mike’s restaurant.
