JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

A new store about open in the Johnson City Mall will likely excite Apple computer users.

It's one of four new stores set to open in the mall during the next few months.

We have confirmed this afternoon that a Mac Authority is set to open in mid-July. Mac Authority is a licensed Apple product reseller.

The new store will be located in the upper level near JC Penny and Charming Charlie according to Marsha hammond. "There is [no Apple retailer] in the market, none in the Tri-Cities. The closest is Chattanooga. We will be the first to the shoppers of the area and it's another regionally-exclusive store for the Mall at Johnson City."

Zumiez, which is an active wear clothing store, also recently opened in the mall.

Officials say they hope to announce two more new stores for the area in the next couple of weeks.
