According to a writer at a local Charlotte, North Carolina blog, a source inside the upcoming Apple Store in the Northlake area says it could open as soon as August 25 or 26. This store won't be far from Apple's big North Carolina data center. Last May, we heard that it was moving from a proposed site near the South Park Mall, landing about 30 miles away from Apple's big complex.
It looks like work has gone well, however -- if this source is legit, folks in Northlake will be able to visit the new store by the end of this month. Congrats!
