Apple is preparing to open a new Apple Store in Adelaide, Australia on May 25 at 10AM. The Rundle Place outlet will not only be Apple's first in Adelaide, but also by extension the first in the state of South Australia, which is otherwise sparsely populated. The company has 19 other stores in the country, most of which are in New South Wales or Victoria.

A unique aspect of the store will be its operating hours, due to legal restrictions on shopping hours. From Monday to Thursday it will operate from 9AM to 7PM; only on Friday will those hours extend to 9PM. On weekends, the shop will close at 5PM, while on Sunday Apple is pushing the opening hour to 11AM.

The store hours is unique because of the regulations set by the South Australian Government on shopping hours. In particular, this restricts the hours the Apple Store can open on weekends.

South Australia Shop Trading Hours

The only abnormalities is that they could have open the store til 9PM Monday to Thursday, but they decided to open til 7PM (which is consistent with most other stores in that area).
