Another Apple Retail Store Opening This Saturday in Glasgow

News of this week's Apple retail store openings has been trickling out day-by-day so far, and it seems that Apple has added one more opening to the schedule for this Saturday.

On Monday, we noted the unusual mid-week opening for the Stratford City store in London scheduled for the following day, with the new Jungfernstieg store in Hamburg, Germany following suit on Saturday. Yesterday, we reported that Apple had added two more opening for Saturday: Cielo Vista Mall in El Paso, Texas and Via Rizzoli in Bologna, Italy.

Apple last night added a fifth opening to this week's schedule with the debut of the Braehead store in Glasgow, Scotland. The store joins the existing Buchanan Street location to become the second in Glasgow, and will be Apple's 33rd store in the United Kingdom.

Two in Glasgow, but none in Edinburgh or any other part of Sotland. Smart.

Well, Glasgow is Scotlands capital.

I don't even want to contemplate the idea of heading to Glasgow in fear of getting a glass bottle up the chin and finish up somewhat like Gordon Ramsay! :eek:

I did some reconnaissance tonight. The new store is located in the lower mall directly facing Next & Sports Direct. The Apple website says it's towards the Boots/Primark end but I actually think it's closer to the middle entrance.

The Braehead website still doesn't say anything about it, the store directory (http://www.braehead.co.uk/Shopping/Store-map) has an unnamed unit facing Sports Direct.

The black hoarding is now down and it's just blacked out windows. Photos attached.
