This is a totally selfish column, so feel free to move on if you wish. But I want Apple to open a retail store in my end of Nashville, TN (that would be the north side).
Apple has a retail store in the west side of Music City in the Green Hills Mall. It’s one of four in the state; the others are in Franklin, Knoxville, and Memphis.
It takes me almost 30 minutes to get to the Green Hills store — and that’s if I go at a time that avoids traffic. There's a demographic in the north side of Nashville and the adjoining Sumner County who wants a retail store that’s more convenient.
May I suggest the Streets of Indian Lake in Hendersonville, Tennessee, which adjoins Nashville? It's in a growing, affluent part of this region, and one that's not being served by an Apple retail store presently.
