More Retail Store Openings Scheduled for El Paso, Texas and Bologna, Italy

Just yesterday, we noted that Apple was planning two retail store openings for this week, with the Stratford City store in London opening today and the Jungfernstieg store in Hamburg, Germany following suit on Saturday. Apple has now announced two additional store openings for this Saturday, continuing its third quarter retail push to bring dozens of new stores online ahead of the holiday shopping period.

- Cielo Vista Mall (El Paso, Texas): Apple's first Texas store west of San Antonio, the Cielo Vista Mall location will fill a significant hole in Apple's retail store coverage. The nearest existing store is over 250 miles north in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The nearest store to the west lies over 300 miles away in Tucson, Arizona, while the San Antonio stores are over 500 miles to the east.


Via Rizzoli retail store in Bologna, Italy (Thanks, Dimitris!)

- Via Rizzoli (Bologna, Italy): Apple's eighth Italian store is the company's first in Bologna and is located about 60 miles from the Florence store that opened just over a month ago. The standalone store is the company's first in Italy to not be located inside a shopping mall.

I highly suggest the MR team take another look at whether or not new Apple Retail Stores are actually newsworthy. We get it. They're all over the place.

I very rarely respond but the posts about new locations opening are getting a bit absurd. This is Page 2 news. This is like getting junk mail on my MacRumors home page. :D

are you drunk or something?:mad::confused:

How misinformed you are my dear god...

we steal money?

so...Greeks...Italians... Spaniards all steal money from EU
the same EU thats SELLS submarines to Portugal to make war against the fish...:roll eyes:

The same EU who has no purpose of existence...
and Greeks commit violence where?
In your dreams?


I agree we do not need an apple store in Greece specially now,but saying all those things indicates how ignorant the citizens are about the problems...

now go and call Goldman Sachs if your advanced country can stay advanced...;)

pure missinformation...


Violence when austerity even talked about, people did die before. Amazing. Last was on 10 September. Arrests. Chaos. Where do you live?

I mean no insult. It is pretty country yes. But Apple will not invest in store where there is violence and no much respect of others personal properties or money. Is too much risk for great company as is Apple. Apple is best to invest in China than silly Greece. As you can see from recent openings. Tim Cook knows.

:apple:

I didn't say there weren't enough PEOPLE, I said not enough MONEY. El Paso is ranked #849 in per capita income amongst Texas cities, with an average annual per capita income of $14388.

Not exactly Apple's best demographic.


But El Paso makes salsa. So is famous place and I think Apple is interested in having the name El Paso in the list of stores. For advertising.

It's the 19th largest in the US, 650,000, 800K in the metro area. I'm sure they get some business from Juarez, too, which is much larger.


How are you basing that information on? El Paso has a decent strong economy. Do you know how many Mexicans come over and shop over here? We also have Ft. Bliss which constantly brining in soldiers who have money to spend. Not to mention two state universities (UTEP & NMSU) and a Medical School.
