Western Australia To Receive Store #2

February 23, 2012

When it comes to Apple stores, remote Perth (Australia) has been the continent’s luckiest city—they have an Apple store, and a distinctive one at that. Now the region’s luck will be doubled when a second store opens in the upscale suburb of South Perth this fall. According to insiders, Apple will open a store somewhere in the city of 38,000 that looks north across the Swan River to city-center Perth. The city has no large shopping center, so it’s possible the store will be tucked into one of the main shopping streets. The existing Perth City store is just a 10-minute drive away. But beyond that, it’s 1,700 miles to the next-nearest stores in the Melbourne suburbs. Based on construction schedules, the South Perth store could open by this September. Update: Locals speculate the store will be located within the Garden City shopping mall located in Booragoon, somewhat southwest of South Perth.
