Apple to Open New Apple Store in Beijing, China This Week
Apple has just announced that it will open a new Apple Store in China’s capital Beijing later this week. This won’t be a large flagship store, but rather a small outlet located in the shopping center in Chaoyang, which is one of Beijing’s largest districts. This new Apple Retail Store could boast of Genius Bar and a special workshop area for those interested in improving their knowledge of Apple products and software.
The outlet in Chaoyang will become the 27th Apple Store in China. The company plans to increase the retail presence in China by opening as many as 40 retail stores in this country by mid-2016. Looks like such a plan will be successfully completed and Apple’s revenue will grow even faster.
When it opens this Saturday, the Chaoyang Apple Store will be Apple's 27th in mainland China. The country is Apple's most important growth market, generating $12.5 billion in revenue over the company's last fiscal quarter of 2015, a number up 99 percent year over year.
As it was mentioned by Apple CEO Tim Cook and other company executives, Chinese market is of great priority for Apple. The company is doing its best to increase the number of iPhones, iPads and Macs sold in this country.
