And now, the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) UWS: For those who've been following the upcoming UWS Apple Store with excitement despite the lack of details, your faith is about to be rewarded! The store is probably going to open on November 20. But the security guards are already in place, so you can line up now. And the glass roof? Boom!
2) NYC: Speaking of rumors, here's one for the "slightly more farfetched" column: Wal-Mart is considering NYC again. It's apparently donating to local charities and hiring political consultants to advise its real estate department.
3) Midtown West: Ebay will be opening a holiday pop-up store at 3 West 57th Street from November 20-29. Inventory will focus on fashion from Norma Kamali, Michael Kors, Dooney & Burke, and others. But there will also be computer kiosks for those who plan to do their usual eBay bidding but just want to get out of the house.
