UPDATED, 5:05 p.m., Feb. 5: Apple fangirls and fanboys in Queens are in for a treat, with the world’s largest company planning its first store in the city’s largest borough.

The proposed store, which will be located on the second floor of the Queens Center Mall at 90-15 Queens Boulevard in Elmhurst, will likely open later this year, according to 9to5Mac. Apple is also in the process of opening up shop in Brooklyn as well as a new location on the Upper East Side, the website reported. The Queens location could be the largest store inside a mall so far, according to the site.

Development of the new stores in Brooklyn — at Bedford Avenue and North 3rd Street in Williamsburg — and the Upper East Side — at 74th Street and Madison Avenue — are both lagging behind, the website reported. The opening date of the Brooklyn store could be pushed back to 2016. [9to5Mac] — Claire Moses

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that Queens was the most populous borough in NYC. In fact, Brooklyn is.
