Apple is about to open its first retail store in Brooklyn, according to an announcement on its website (via MacRumors). The store, which is located at 247 Bedford Ave. in Williamsburg, will officially kick off its grand opening at 10 a.m. on July 30.

Apple has been hiring workers for the store since May, and the building has been under renovation since 2015. In all, this first Brooklyn store joins six others spread out across New York City, with the majority lying in Manhattan.
