Apple Planning New Retail Store in Lansing, Michigan [Mac Blog]

Apple is preparing to open a new retail store in Lansing, Michigan, according to the Lansing State Journal. The plans for a 6,000 square foot store at the Eastwood Towne Center were discovered in paperwork submitted to Lansing Township officials by a contractor working with Apple.

A contractor for the Cupertino, Calif.-based technology company filed an application with Lansing Township officials to start work on a nearly 6,000-square-foot retail store at 3025 Preyde Boulevard, which is part of the shopping center near U.S. 127 and Lake Lansing Road.

Apple will remodel a vacant commercial space between Bath & Body Works and Victoria’s Secret as part of a multimillion dollar project led by Chicago-based Pepper Construction Co.

Apple started hiring for this new Lansing store several months ago and still has 13 available positions ranging from Store Leader to Specialist (Via ifoAppleStore). This would be Apple’s sixth location in Michigan and would provide retail coverage for customers in the central part of the state. Other Michigan stores are located in Ann Arbor, Clinton Township, Grand Rapids, Novi and Troy.

As part of its annual 10-K filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Apple revealed that the company plans to open 30 new retail stores in 2014, with approximately two-thirds of these new stores located outside the U.S. This international push already is in progress, with the company opening its first retail store in Brazil last week. Over 1,700 customers visited the Rio de Janeiro location on its opening day.

Someone Just Paid $610,000 For A Cup Of Coffee With Tim Cook

The charity auction to score a coffee date in Cupertino with Apple CEO Tim Cook has closed, and the winning bid ended up being $610,00. Yes, that’s more than a half million dollars for an hour of Cook’s time. The estimated price was originally $50,000.

After 86 bids that quickly sent the auction into the stratosphere, an anonymous bidder known only as “a********s” swooped in today and won with the closing bid.

The auction was conducted by CharityBuzz to raise money for the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights. Cook tied with a Lamborghini Aventador as the highest grossing bid in CharityBuzz’s history. A day with former U.S. President Bill Clinton recently sold for $255,000.

Charity Auction Bids for Coffee With Tim Cook Pass $500,000

With a flurry of activity today, bidding on the charity auction for a coffee meeting with Tim Cook at Apple’s headquarters has passed $500,000, nearly doubling the previous record for a CharityBuzz „experience“ auction set last year when a bidder paid $255,000 to spend a day with Bill Clinton.

The bid list seems to be a combination of serious bidders and those likely simply seeking visibility for their names or brands and relying on the fact that there are 18 days left to bid to hope that they won’t actually win the auction. CharityBuzz notes in its FAQ that all bids are legally binding and can not be retracted.

Can I retract a bid?

No, and we’re pretty strict about this. Here’s the legalese: All bids placed on the Charitybuzz website are legally binding. If you are the successful bidder, you will enter into a legal contract to purchase the item and will be considered the buyer of the lot. Please consider your bids carefully before placing them.

The auction for coffee with Cook, which is part of a group of roughly 100 celebrity auctions supporting the RFK Center for Justice & Human Rights, will see the winner and a guest travel at their own expense to Apple headquarters to meet with Cook for 30-60 minutes over coffee on a mutually agreed upon date.

Coffee With Tim Cook Auction Reaches $295,000, Breaks Charitybuzz Record

Earlier this week we wrote about a Charitybuzz auction that will get you coffee with Apple CEO Tim Cook at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. At the time, the auction had reached $5,250, but its estimated value was just under ten times that amount at $50,000.

Just a few days later, the auction has received 68 bids and reached a whopping $295,000 with 18 days still to go. It’s now Charitybuzz’s biggest ever auction.

Until now, the biggest Charitybuzz auction was the chance to spend a day with former U.S. President Bill Clinton, which collected a total of $255,000. Cook’s auction has already breezed past that, and it shows no signs of stopping, with almost three weeks still to run.

At this rate, there’s a chance the auction could reach $1 million before it ends on Tuesday, May 14. That’s pretty crazy when you consider that the winner gets just 30 minutes to one hour with the Apple CEO, but it’s awesome news for The RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights, which will receive the proceeds when the auction closes.
