Upstairs across from Mcdonalds. The construction wall now features an iPod ad with two simple words "coming soon"

Not simple for me. I have to avoid anywhere there is an Apple store...too many nice things...;)

Would be nice if someone could take a digital photo and post.

I still have this little ting of doubt, is this an Apple store or an iPod store.

Heh! An iPod store! Meh, not enough things to sell! And, Apple would never torture us like that!

Probably too big for an ipod only store, but definitely not a flagship store. By my estimation it looks about the size of yorkdale, possibly a little bigger.

Gee...I just walked past that yesterday...and, yeah, it's not very big.

So, I'll have one store right near my house and another right near my office. The universe is a rich pageant of wonder and mystery.

Awesome!

By the way, I hate the layout of the Yorkdale store, with all the software shoved up next to the registers. Too cramped! I hope the Eaton's Centre store is better arranged.

The construction wall to the right of the Apple Ad does not mention a store name just a quote, which I just forgot after coming from the Eaton Centre an hour ago. I've noticed the construction walls of the new stores coming into the Eaton Centre advertise their names. My first look I thought it was going to be small like Yorkdale but I don't know now. Didn't peek through the door crack today.

It's a pretty standard layout. Just tweaked recently in some stores in October.

I suppose, but whenever I'm to the left of the registers, I'm almost run over by the staff going from the stockroom to the genius bar and back. I'm sure they hate the excessive walking back and forth, too.

I was there today... no date posted - didn't they post one on Yorkdale, only to paint over it a few days later?

I peeked inside, through the crack in the doors, and it still looks pretty barren in there. Less "contstruction" messy, more just plain white everywhere. I'm no expert but I'd say it'll be at least a month, proabably two or three before it's ready to go.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone who as applied for a job there (come on, i'm sure there have been at least a few of you...) heard back or had interviews yet? It would interesting to hear if they've started hiring/training yet.
