If tipsters are correct, Apple threw a dart at the map of North America to locate a new store, and it nearly landed in the Atlantic Ocean. Instead, the dart stuck in the Halifax Shopping Centre (Nova Scotia), where the future store will become the eastern-most location in North America. In fact, it’s 350 miles further east than the next-closest Maine Mall store. According to the allNovaScotia.com Web site (sub.), the future store will appear near the Sears store, in an area that’s been under construction since mid-November. Workers are reportedly relocating an escalator and building a mezzanine level where the Apple store will eventually appear. The mall was renovated in 2007, and recently has been adding several upscale retailers to serve the province’s one million residents. There are already 22 Apple stores in Canada, with possibly another four opening during 2012.
