Apple to Open Two New Retail Stores in Ontario and Florida on July 27

Apple is continuing its push to open and expand new Apple Stores and will unveil two new retail locations this Saturday, located at the Markville Shopping Centre in Markham, Ontario, and the Florida Mall in Orlando, Florida.

The Markville Shopping Centre is Markham's biggest shopping mall, with more than 160 stores. The Markham Apple Store will be the 12th location to open up in Ontario, with four of those located in nearby Toronto.

Apple's new Florida Mall Retail Store, located in Orlando's largest shopping center, is an expansion that will see the mall's Apple Store tripling in size and relocating next door to the Microsoft Store.

The new Apple Store is approximately 8,640 square feet, which is double the size of the Microsoft retail location. Apple first opened a retail store at the Florida Mall in 2005.

At store openings, Apple typically hands out commemorative T-shirts to its first 1,000 customers. Both stores are set to open at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 27, and have already begun accepting reservations for workshops and Genius Bar appointments.

I pretty much gave up on going to all three of the Apple stores in Orlando, as they are always so crowded that it isn't worth the hassle. I do all my Apple purchasing online.

I'm hoping the FL mall one will improve, but I'm not holding my breath.

WHY are they crowded? Because the stores are used like Mini Theme Parks, full of kids playing with everything/hanging out ect. Have you ever wanted to actually go and evaluate one of the products? You have to wait until little kids have finished, literally line up to look at an iPad or something because there are kids just standing there playing with them. I would be interested to learn Apple's 'bigger picture' reasoning for letting these stores become total zoos crowded with brats who are not buying anything. BTW: They are not tourists, these stores get crowded out with local kids who have nowhere to go so they hang out at the mall, particularly the Apple Store online and playing with all the free toys.
