If you aren’t sure, let me be the first to tell you that this is big news! Everyone knows that I’m from Columbia, SC and that I’m a Gamecock girl.

The closes Apple store to the campus is either Charlotte or Augusta. There is one in Charleston, but that drive doesn’t make sense unless you just want to go to Charleston. The alleged plan is for this store to open next year. It will be located on the ground floor of the Byrnes Building.

The Apple store is going to be a part of a new project called iCarolina Tech Hub. From what I read, the store will be managed by the College of Hospitality, Retail and Sport Management. This is going to be big. The only difference with this store is it’s only open to USC faculty, students, and staff.
