Shanghai Apple Store Opens Saturday

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 09:00 AM

"Chinese Apple fan club members have a new meeting place to talk about Apple in, with the Shanghai Apple Store opening this weekend. Fanatics descend from street level through a 40-foot cylinder, then serenely glide in via glass staircase."

What a fantastic design! The Paris store is also quite nice and more artistic I suppose in the classical sense, but this one I really like.

Apple's Perth Retail Store Opens This Saturday

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 10:00 AM

"The residents of Perth (Australia) have felt left-out and lonely for years, but their yearning for an Apple retail store will end this Saturday at 9 a.m. when the Perth City store opens on Hay Street in the central business district."

Obviously, from the photo above, construction is still in progress but I'm sure they will be ready for the store opening this Saturday at 9am. The building used to house a pastry shop until Apple bought it and gutted it for the new store, and according to the article they also added a bar and office space to the backside of the building. Sounds like they are planning for customers having to wait for their Genius Bar appointments. The press release for the event is here, and if you want more info on the store itself, Apple has a site for it here.

Speaking of Store Openings, Will Bondi Store Open on Time?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 05:00 AM

"Less than 48 hours before it is scheduled to open, the Bondi (Sydney) retail store is hardly a jewel-it is obscured by scaffolding, and covered by black tarps and netting being blown by 20 mph winds and pounded by continuous rain."

The store in Sidney Australia is supposed to open on Friday at 8am, but they appear to really be pushing the deadline don't they? You can find more info about it at the Apple store page for Bondi.
