Apple to Open New Retail Store in Chongqing, China on July 26
Last Wednesday, Apple put up a colorful banner over the store's exterior, signaling that the store would be opening shortly. The store will be Apple's eleventh in the country, joining four stores each in Shanghai and Beijing, one in Chengdu, and another in Shenzhen.
Apple has made efforts towards growing its presence in China over the past few years, most notably partnering with the country's biggest carrier China Mobile late last year in addition to opening new retail stores. Apple also became China's fifth-largest smartphone vendor in Q4 2013, accounting for 7% of market share in the country.
