Apple has posted several job listings today for an upcoming retail store in Macau, a Special Administrative Region of China. The store is looking to fill Specialist, Creative, Genius, Store Leader and Manager positions, in addition to hiring for the Apple Store Leader Program and multiple business-related positions.

Chinese-language newspaper Macao Daily reported in June that Apple is planning to open a flagship store in Macau, which is located across from Hong Kong, but the news went largely uncovered by mainstream media. At the time, the report claimed that Apple had not finalized a location for the upcoming store.


Apple celebrated the grand opening of its Apple Store in Brussels today, while two new Apple Stores also open in Nanjing, China and Florence, Italy today and September 26 respectively. Apple now operates over 460 retail stores worldwide.

i am from Macau , and i would say we are very different from chinese !
the world only knows HK , but actually HK and macau are the two SAR of china and have many similarities.
( eg. we were both colonies of european countries, speak cantonese)

LOL, Nanjing.... been there... what a dump, literally. I recall walking through the city only to see some kid taking a dump on the pavement... Seriously... Plus it p*ssed down the whole five days and I was full of cold. Not my best ever city break. HK on the other hand was ace! Love that town!

The Macao Apple Store is under construction/decoration, located in the Galaxy Mega resort Phase II. The construction includes a structural modification to the floor slab (to accommodate Apple signature glass staircase), so the construction took a bit longer than the other shops (those opened in May 2015).

BTW, Macao is a fine place to live and have good people to make friend with (and fine food of course!). (I am from Hong Kong...:) ).
And Portuguese is a beautiful language worth to learn (though we rarely use Portuguese in macao)

Quite sure :)

The picture with RED marks on it shows the location of the Apple Store (the bright LED pattern you saw was the temporary hoarding of the shop, it spans two floors.
The second picture is a closer look at 2/F.
The location is just next to the "Crystal Lobby".

But sorry, can't show you the internal pictures.

No one really speaks Portuguese anymore in Macau, so no worries.

Still a small population of Portuguese speaking Macanese you may encounter. Though they can speak fluent Cantonese or English, talk to them in Portuguese are definitely benifitial. :).

Yup, no worries. Apart from legal or formal governmental issues, this is the popularity of language in Macao : Cantonese-Mandarin-English-Portuguese .

The store at the Galaxy seems to be making some progress. The horrible backlit facade is gone an replaced with a dark blue one (if I was a conspiracy theorist I'd say matching the potential dark blue iPhone 7) and there are Apple logos on both levels.

A couple of weeks ago I was able to peek through the old facade and see apple-style tills being installed.

Looks like it is close to opening!
