Apple is set to open four new retail stores this Saturday, ifoAppleStore
remarks. Two of these
are in China, including the MixC
outlet in Chengdu, and the Causeway Bay
location in Hong Kong. Australia is getting a store in Fountain Gate
in Narre Warren (outside Melbourne), while Sweden's second-ever store will be based in the Emporia
In New Jersey, meanwhile, the Rockaway
outlet is scheduled to move into a much bigger space. The existing space is a "mini" store, representing a concept Apple has largely abandoned. The new space should measure about 6,000 square feet, putting it on par with its modern siblings.
Apple is planning to open about 30 to 35 more stores during its 2013 fiscal year, which is already underway. Most of these are due to launch outside the US, as the company tries to expand outside the already-saturated American market.
