In a new report outlining Apple’s future for physical retail, Bloomberg is reporting that the tech company is planning a huge retail push around the world.
The large tech giant is planning to open over 50 stores around the globe in the next four years. What city popped up on the tentative list? Wichita.
While nothing is set in stone, it’s reported that a Wichita location in Bradley Fair is in the plan for February 2025.
Presently, Apple has 520 stores with half of them located in the U.S. Some of the closest locations to Wichita are in Tulsa, OK, Oklahoma City, OK and Leawood, KS. The stores are a big showcase for building Apple’s brand, followed by selling their products and offering a space for tech support. It serves as a place for customers to buy products, get help and even take classes.
If news of an Apple Store comes to fruition, it would be a huge get for Bradley Fair, who has scored a Trader Joe’s and Nordstrom Rack over the years. Where an Apple Store will go, remains to be seen, but there is an empty building waiting to be leased in the former Outback Steakhouse space.
