Australia: One New Store Confirmed, One Discovered

March 23, 2012

The capitol city of Australia is one of two Apple retail stores that will open later this year, according to newly-posted job listings. The country already has 13 Apple  stores from coast-to-coast, and two additional stores are now under construction in Sydney and Perth. The location of the future store in Canberra isn’t known, but it would be about three hours south of the nearest Apple store in Sydney. There are two potential malls in the region operated by Westfield, one of Apple’s favorite developers—Woden southwest of city center, and Belconnen, northwest. The second job listing likely confirms a two year-old tip about a store at Westfield Carindale, southeast of city-center Brisbane on the east-central coast. Like the Canberra listing, a specific location isn’t mentioned, but in 2010 tipsters said a large tenant was moving out to make space for Apple, and the mall was undergoing a renovation. Construction on both stores could be finished for October 2012 grand openings.
