Apple to Reach Goal of 40 Stores in China Later This Month

Apple has announced that it will be opening its 39th and 40th retail stores in China in Tianjin and Shanghai on Saturday, June 11 and Saturday, June 18 respectively. Both grand openings will take place at 10:00 a.m. local time.

Apple's second new store in Tianjin this year will be located at the Galaxy International Shopping Center on 9 Le Yuan Road in the city's southwest Hexi District. The store will be open seven days a week between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m.

Apple's second new store in Shanghai this year will be located at the new Hopson One complex, which contains a shopping mall, hotel, office building, and more, at 1099 Xiangyin Road in Wujiaochang, Yangpu District.

In January 2015, Apple retail chief Angela Ahrendts said the company had a goal of operating 40 stores in the Greater China region within two years, and these pair of new store openings fulfill that milestone after just 18 months.

Apple has aggressively expanded its retail footprint in Greater China, which includes Hong Kong and Taiwan, opening eleven new stores in Shanghai, Xiamen, Nanjing, Guangzhou, Shenyang, Tianjin, Dalian, Qingdao, Fuzhou, and Jinan this year.

Apple opened a dozen new stores throughout China in 2015, including the first two locations in Hangzhou and a fifth store in Beijing. Other new stores opened in Chongqing, Dalian, Hong Kong, Nanjing, Nanning, Shenyang, Tianjin, and Zhengzhou.

It'll be the first update that Galaxy receives


I wonder if they'll have to pull it when it bricks their phones.
Oh, wait, that was 9.3

I think it a bit of an irony that one of the Apple stores will be in the Galaxy Mall. :eek:
