Upcoming Saskatchewan Apple Retail Store Fills Huge Void in Coverage [Updated]

Monday April 30, 2012 11:52 PM PDT by Eric Slivka
ifoAppleStore reports that Apple is planning to open a new retail store in the Cornwall Centre shopping mall in Regina, Saskatchewan. The location is a notable one for being the first in the vast province in the heart of Canada, with no other Apple retail stores located within a 300-mile radius.

Cornwall Centre is located in city center and has 90 retailers in an enclosed mall. City planning documents mention the new store, but the exact location within the mall isn’t known. Based on construction schedules, the store could open by November 2012.
Regina, the provincial capital with a population of roughly 200,000, is the second-largest city and part of the second-largest metropolitan area in Saskatchewan, just behind Saskatoon.

Update: As noted in our forums and confirmed by The Regina Leader-Post (via iPhoneinCanada.ca), the forthcoming store is actually a reseller and not an official Apple retail store.
Regina's Cornwall Centre is getting a store selling Apple products — though, contrary to rumours that circulated Tuesday morning on the web — it won't be an Apple store.

Krista Bebeau, the downtown mall's marketing manager, said it will an outlet of a firm called iWorld Connect — the website of which (http://iworldconnect.com/) confirms the company is opening a store in Regina.

Nearest 700 miles? (Also, Canada we use kilometres.) Big whoop, there's not one in the Atlantic provinces at all, the nearest is Montreal, some 2000 km away from here in St. John's.

The province only has 1 million people, who cares which city is the capital? Jeez, yokels.

Also, Regina sucks and the Apple store should be in the Midtown, not the Cornwall. Regina doesn't even have a proper starbucks, WTF will they do with an Apple Store?


Oh no not a starbucks I guess Regina lacking all those hippsters driving hybrid cars . Regina and Saskatoon are 2 of the fastest growing cities in Canada right now not sure about Saskatoon numbers but regina economy grew by 6.1 % and there tons of major delveopment going down there so I think apple see that this is place where people have money to spend and is a good place to open a store . If Regina getting a store if this article is even true it won't be do long till Saskatoon getting one. knowing apple they are just waiting for a prime location to open up from what I heard they are very picky where they place store in . But man you sure hate Regina guess someone from there must of pooped in your corn flakes .

If this happens, it will be across the street from me, so that's cool.

And, it would only be a block away from Tony Merchant's office - who just happens to have two class action lawsuits filed against Apple!

Seen in a toilet stall in an Airdrie AB restaurant:

"Here I sit all tired and hurtin',
Given birth to another Albertian" [sp]

And below was written:

"Nice spelling. Must be from Sascratchyerbum."

I laughed.

The "nice" thing is a front. It's to suck you all in while we take over the world.

Wish the rumors were true though.


Disappointing, it would be nice to have an Apple store closer than Calgary or Edmonton.
