As a follow-up to my previous blog entry, analyzing how Baton Rouge seemed to be trumping NOLA for large commercial retail spaces, The Advocate announced today plans for Louisiana's first Apple Store at a new extension of the Mall of Louisiana. Apple filed a permit to build a 5,500 square foot store. If you haven't been to an Apple Store-it is a holy experience for any MAC lover and if your like the PC guy, you might be converted.
Sephora must not have heard my pleas to open in New Orleans, as they have plans to open a 6,000 square foot space near the new Apple Store as well.
In other Baton Rouge shopping news, Anthropologie officially opened this past weekend at Perkins Rowe.
And if the Sex and the City movie buzz, gets you craving Sarah Jessica's adorable and affordable line-BITTEN. Well, you'll have to hit up Steve and Barry's at the Mall of Cortana, in sigh, B.R.
