Apple will be opening another massive new store in the region tomorrow as its IFC Mall store in Hong Kong debuts. Checking in at over 16,000 square feet and with over 300 employees of its own, the new Hong Kong store offers a prominent presence for Apple in one of the world's major financial and shopping centers.
