by

Apple's upcoming retail store in Hanover, Germany may finally open in late September, reports developer Florian Schimanke (Google Translate, via iFun.de) citing sources close to Apple's retail team in the region. The report notes that Apple has had to fix a number of problems with the building to be used for the store, including physical defects, mold, and ventilation issues.

Apple's upcoming retail store in Hanover, Germany covered by barricades

According to iFun, it is also possible that the store could open to the public on September 19, which has been rumored to be the launch date for the iPhone 6. Apple originally put up its traditional black barricades for the location back in April 2013, as images showing progress on the store surfaced this past March. The layout of the Hanover store will also be similar to the Apple Store Opéra in Paris, France, which has become known as one of the company's most visually appealing locations.

During its financial results conference call for the third quarter of 2013, Apple announced that it would be building over 30 new stores in fiscal 2014, with 2/3 of those stores being built outside of the United States. Some of those openings have included the Apple Store Zorlu Center in Turkey, the Apple Store VillageMall in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and the Apple Store Kurfürstendamm, Berlin, Germany.

Official English spelling is "Hanover". As this is not a German site, the spelling is correct.

In German it's written like that, yes. But the English transcription of it’s name is indeed Hanover with only one n. It’s like Milan in English while it’s Milano in Italian. Or Cologne in English and Köln in German, Munich in English and München in German, … and so on…

How about an Apple Store in Austria?!

We only have authorized Resellers like McShark and McWorld and those are going bancrupt because they are overpriced when it comes to accessories and the service is really bad.
