La Maquinista (Barcelona) Apple Store under wraps
First to open will be the La Maquinista store in Barcelona, set to open at 10:00 AM on this Saturday, September 4th. The Xanad store in Madrid will follow one week later. In late June, ifoAppleStore took a look at the two new locations, which appear to be of the fairly standard Apple Store design variety located in typical shopping mall environments.

A third Spanish store is reportedly slated for Valencia and is scheduled to open possibly as soon as the end of the year in a historic building near the city's center.
Apple has been making a series of high-profile store opening in countries around the world in recent months. Earlier this month, it opened its largest-yet store in the Covent Garden section of London. In July, the company opened a store in Shanghai featuring a large, cylindrical glass tower at its entrance. The company opened its first French store at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris last November.
