Apple has announced that its fifth retail store in Hong Kong opens on Thursday, June 30 at 10:00 a.m. local time. The store will be located inside the New Town Plaza shopping mall at 18 Sha Tin Centre Street.
The store will be open seven days a week between 10:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. local time, providing customers in the northern Sha Tin District with access to the Genius Bar and other traditional store services.
As noted in our Apple Stores roundup, construction of the store is nearly completed. Apple Store, New Town Plaza will be the company's 46th retail store in Greater China and 484th retail store overall.
Apple's other Hong Kong locations include Canton Road, Causeway Bay, Festival Walk, and IFC Mall, the last of which expanded into a third floor in late 2015.

I've been to this mall. Very crowded and the Apple Store will do well there if for no other reason than to host the flood of mainland Chinese tourists from Shenzhen. The only odd part is that just two or three subway stops away, there's another big Apple Store. I would've put this new one in a different location. But what do I know.
What I'm saying is, you don't have a global sense. If you actually read news from WSJ, TIME, Bloomberg, instead of Fox News, you'd read about Hong Kong, Singapore, NYC, London on a daily basis (business). But maybe you don't need that since you're in the military and you don't go to college.
And yes it does AFFECT you. You may not be living in New York or London, but everything happening in these cities are gonna have a major effect on how you live. Do you not remember that one bank in Wall Street wenting bankrupt in 2008? Yeah that did us no good. Political reform in Hong Kong, new prime minister in Singapore, new Mayor in London, Brexit, EU, they're gonna have a major effect on your economy. If you're thinking that something happening in another country doesn't affect at all, you're just ignorant.
However, knowing that actually a lot of American and even British people don't even know what EU is... maybe it's reasonable for them to not know about the things happening outside their houses at all.
The world is so much more than the next iPhone man. Where are you from?
Kung Fu is Cantonese, which Hong Kong people speak, and Wushu is Mandarin, which Mainland Chinese speak. (Yes Hong Kong people and Mainland Chinese even speak different languages:rolleyes:.) Kung Fu and Wushu are both Chinese martial art, but there are differences between them that I am not really familiar with. Jackie Chan, who is from Hong Kong, is really famous for his action movies ('https://youtu.be/Z1PCtIaM_GQ'). I don't really know which branch of Chinese martial art he does though.
To be politically correct, Hong Kong IS part of China. However, most Hong Kong people (including me) don't like to call themselves Chinese due to the huge cultural differences between Hong Kong and Mainland China.
If you have any questions about Hong Kong, I am more than happy to answer you :).
Sad to see fellow Americans don't care about what is going on in the world...
Just simply imagine what would happen if they overthrew the Chinese government successfully.
