According to ifo AppleStore, Vancouver's site of an Apple store is finally confirmed:

After years of speculation and anticipation, there is finally confirmation that that an Apple store will occupy a space inside the Pacific Centre Mall in downtown Vancouver (BC). The three-block indoor mall has been undergoing a long-term and extensive renovation that included demolition, construction and the juggling and moving of several retailers, along with the addition of new stores. But Apple isn’t among those new tenants. Instead, additional construction will begin in 2009 for retail space where Apple will locate its first western Canada store. That work will be finished by the holiday season of 2009 and, most importantly, for the 2010 Olympic Games that begin in February.

Apple resellers in Vancouver

Curious if any of you have good experiences with Apple resellers in Vancouver? If so, would you still buy from them when the Apple store opens?

The Latest Rumors

Vancouver Opening Could Be Spring ‘08
October 31st, 2007
Apple has posted job listings for the future Pacific Centre mall in Vancouver (BC), a location that was confirmed here earlier this month. Based on the timing of previous store openings, the listings mean the store could open as early as next Spring, not early 2009 as previously predicted.

I've always had good experiences with Simply Computing. I would certainly continue to use them (price dependent). No way I would want to try and force my way into downtown Vancouver / Pacific Centre. Ugh.

I would still have to do at least one pilgrimage just to finally see what these mythical "Apple Stores" look like.

I'm looking forward to having a store here (I'm in Vancouver) but I don't honestly know if I'll use it much.

I live and work out of the downtown core, and driving in is a nightmare.

I have used Mac Station a lot, and think they're awesome. Especially the one in Burnaby. And I'll probably continue to shop there even when the store is open.

Cheers.

I was walking through Pacific Centre on my way home from work today, and the hoardings outside the old Holt Renfrew space are now painted black. That's got to be confirmation!!!

That area is supposed to open in Spring 2008, and coupled with the fact that Apple are now looking for staff for a Vancouver store, it looks like we could have a store here sooner than we first thought?

Yay!

Neil.
