Hurrah… the worst kept secret in Birmingham is out in the open, officially. The new Apple Store at The Summit is opening this Saturday morning. The new Birmingham-area news site, The Terminal, and local web-phenom Jeremy Flint each broke the story earlier this afternoon. The store’s Grand Opening is Saturday at 10am. Members of the media (credentials required) get in early at 9am.
The following is from http://www.apple.com/retail/thesummit/:
