A story in the Philadelphia Business Journal implies that Apple may be opening a retail store in downtown Philadelphia in a space formerly occupied by Borders Books & Music.

In March 2003, Borders moved out of the site to its present Center City location, at 1 South Broad St. The Walnut Street space has been vacant since. Midwood is expected to divide the retail space into three parts, said Steinberg, who is handling leasing for Midwood Property.
Potential clients, Steinberg said, include the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, which is considering opening a high-end wine and spirits store; Apple Computer; Sephora, a high-end cosmetics shop with another area location at the King of Prussia Mall; and apparel retailer Ann Taylor, now at 1713 Walnut St. This would be an additional site for Ann Taylor.
If leases are signed, both the LCB store and Apple would have two-story stores within the existing site.
