Late June typically marks the time of year in which Apple retail store openings begin to ramp up, and this year appears to be no exception with three grand openings scheduled for this Saturday, June 30. The group of three is Apple's largest batch of openings since seven stores opened in one weekend last September. This week's openings include:

- Ridge Hill (Yonkers, New York): The new Ridge Hill store is located just outside of New York City in Westchester County and is Apple's 17th retail store in the state of New York, breaking a tie with Florida for the third most-popular state for Apple retail stores behind California and Texas.

- CoolSprings Galleria (Franklin, Tennessee): Apple's CoolSprings Galleria store in Franklin is roughly 15 miles south of downtown Nashville and about the same distance in driving miles from the existing Green Hills store. The new store will be Apple's fourth in Tennessee.

- Broadway (Sydney, Australia): The new Broadway store will be Apple's 14th in Australia, with half of those located in the Sydney area. Australia is Apple's fourth most-popular country for retail store construction behind the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.

All three stores will open to the public at 10:00 AM local time on Saturday.

Apple has a formula on where they open stores based on numerous factors, not to mention location data for tens of millions of phones. They know where their customers live and work. :)

You guys are lucky to have apple stores near you. Here in South Africa we have to deal through a 3rd party which is beyond pathetic.

Nice!

Now there are two in Nashville. The one at Green Hills is always super busy, so hopefully this will lighten the traffic a bit. :)
