Apple is planning to open retail stores in Albany, New York, at Crossgates, and Germantown, TN, at Saddle Creek, on October 13, according to graphics on Apple’s Hot News page. Neither store’s opening date is highlighted on Apple’s retail page, however. Given this morning’s miscommunication on Apple’s part regarding the Buffalo, New York, store (see earlier today), we’re currently working to confirm that these graphics and dates are indeed accurate.
