MEPA—Ending a day full of Apple news, a Racked informant sends the above photo and this note about the company's Meatpacking District store, "The attached image is peeking into the Apple Store site in the Meatpacking District. The Genius Bar isn't quite set up yet, but we seem to have the iToilet display all ready to go." Ah, the lack of progress evident in this photo is disappointing. Guess we can consider that "end of year" opening date officially off. [RackedWire Inbox]
FLATIRON DISTRICT—Regarding a reader query about the opening date for the Energie/Miss Sixty store in the Flatiron District, a tipster writes: "They are making calls right now recruiting management, I just got off of the phone with HR. It's happening. Get ready! No details on the date." [RackedWire Inbox]
