First Images of Completed Brisbane, Australia Flagship Apple Retail Store Emerge

With Apple's newest flagship retail store set to open on Friday in Brisbane, Australia, the first photos of the impressive MacArthur Chambers location are beginning to emerge. These photos were sent to us by MacRumors reader Phillip and show the nearly completed store stocked with merchandise.

The store is located in the famous MacArthur Chambers building, a 10-story high-rise that was originally constructed back in 1934. Building plans indicated that Apple made some minor changes to the structure, adding windows, a stairway, and other features.

A number of other photos of the store were separately posted on the Australian website Reckoner. The new location is scheduled to open on Friday, January 17 at 10 a.m., and both workshop reservations and Genius Bar appointments are already being accepted on its website.

The store has been in the works for nearly three years and is one of twenty-one locations now open in Australia, including the stunning George Street location in Sydney.

Apple with their $120B in cash couldn't higher a half decent photographer with a camera better than an iphone to take pictures of a flagship store? This is straight out of Tim Cook the beancounter's penny-pinching playbook and Jobs never would have allowed such shoddy work.

Beautiful, we're pretty lucky in the Australian capital cities to have a number of Apple Stores at our disposal.

It's great we now also have a historic Apple Store in the mix too.

He just signed in to complain. Reading a paragraph is clearly too much work.

That's a nice looking store. But is it me or does it feel a little sterile...?
