Apple retail store in Brussels, Belgium

The company is looking to fill the usual Creative, Expert, Genius, Manager, Store Leader, and Business Leader positions, among others, and applications for the two-year Apple Store Leader Program are also open.

The location will be Apple's first retail store in Thailand, and its second in Southeast Asia, following its Singapore location that opened in May.

In July, the Bangkok Post reported that the store will open in 2018 at the Iconsiam, a future mixed-use development with two shopping malls in Bangkok. The flagship location is said to have over 20,000 square feet of space.

Apple continues to hire for retail stores in Vienna and Seoul as well, which will be the first in Austria and South Korea respectively.

In related news, Apple has announced that its Woodfield store in Schaumburg, Illinois will be relocating to a new unit in the shopping mall on September 30. The current store, opened in August 2001, is Apple's fifth oldest, and one of just four to still have a classic black storefront with two Apple logos.

I grew up going to the Woodfield store and am weirdly nostalgic about them moving it. So many memories there from seeing this thing called the 'iPod' to jailbreaking the first iPhones to buying my first mac. Oh well, times change.

First Singapore, then Thailand. It's about time Apple pays attention to the SE Asia region.

The the first Austrian Apple Store will not be "near Vienna", but rather right smack in the center of town, on Kärntnerstrasse 11, just a few steps from St.Stephen's cathedral.

Google maps already shows the location:

Same for Korea. It’s not “near” Seoul, either. It’s right in the middle of the popular boutique street Garosu-Gil, in Gangnam district, the financial center of Seoul. MacRumors is trying to be vague at their own peril.
