Perth is set to get it's third Apple store in the northern suburbs if the rumours reported by ifo Apple Store are true. "Nearly two years after Apple’s real estate scouts were spotted walking the hallways of the Lakeside Joondalup (Australia) shopping mall, sources say Apple has finally signed a lease there and has started to recruit new employees. The store would be the third along the western coast of the country, an outpost of Apple stores about 1,300 miles away from the next-nearest stores. The timing of the new store is understandable—the mall is undergoing a renovation and expansion that will make it the largest shopping center in Western Australia. The work will free up existing spaces and create new ones where Apple can find the perfect 5,000 square-foot location. The city of Joondalup is about 16 miles north of the existing Perth City Apple store, and within the north-south retail corridor established as part of Perth’s master plan back in the 1960s. No specific space within the mall has been reported, but a lease plan shows there are several potential spots. Based on hiring schedules, the store could open in early 2015."
Will you be joining me for the opening ?
