Newest Australia Store Opens Next Week

October 13, 2010

Apple will push further into suburban towns along the east coast of Australia when the Charlestown retail store holds its grand opening next Thursday, October 21st. Unusually, the company gave a full week’s notice for the grand opening of the store, the country’s 10th, about two hours north of Sydney. Beyond Sydney, Apple has planted just two stores along the east coast, both in the Brisbane region. That store spacing leaves 575 miles of coastline without an Apple presence, which this location will help provide. The grand opening will be at 5 p.m., with the usual 1,000 commemorative T-shirts.

I’m glad to see that Apple is opening in new cities. But Canberra has more population and Adelaide is four times the size of Newcastle, Charlestown’s metro area. Hopefully Apple will find good locations in those cities soon. Personally I fell that it is more important to have locations in as many cities as practical than the third or fourth location in metro areas.
