As construction continues on what will be Apple's fourth retail store in Hong Kong, located in the upscale shopping area of Canton Road, new pictures of the store's facade with an Apple logo shared by iMag on Facebook officially confirm that the Cupertino-based company will soon be opening up shop in the area. The store has been planned since at least August 2013 and under renovation for the past several months.

Apple Store Hong Kong Canton Road
The new Canton Road location is expected to be one of the biggest Apple Stores in Asia and will mark the fourth store in Hong Kong alongside Causeway Bay, Festival Walk and IFC Mall locations. It remains unknown when the new store will open to customers, but Apple appears to be in the final stages of construction and should announce grand opening details on its website in the coming weeks or months.

That looks gorgeous. Now if only their customer service would improve...
Really? How is their customer service in need of improvement? I've been an Apple customer for years, and the only times I've ever left frustrated is when I've done something to my phone/laptop that wasn't covered under Applecare. The thing is, instead of saying they have bad customer service, I acknowledged that the thing that I did was outside of their coverage.

Not to mention, I've always found that as long as I'm polite, they will do everything in their power to go above and beyond their job requirements.

All the "fiscally responsible" Mainlanders just load up on luxury products in Hong Kong, because they don't charge tax there :p

Yeah, that's the real kicker. Some people feel that customer service people are there to service their needs only, so they can be rude and patronising to get what they want (customer is always right, etc.). I have little doubt that a majority of bad experiences with Apple are due to this.

To anybody reading this: a smile on your face and some simple courtesy - i.e., treat them like a human being, with respect and decency - will get you a long way.
