    Why is it news whenever Apple opens a new store? Other companies don't make such a big deal out of store openings.
    Do you all take interest in trivial store openings?

    Lots of companies make a press releases when they open new stores.

    No, but share holders might care.

    Publicity is publicity.

    Free publicity is even better.

    Apple like to smother their stores in money and praise. That tends to make people tick it appears.

    Hmm...I seem to remember lots of news about the store within store that Microsoft, Samsung and Google have opened in Best Buy. Does that not count?

    Apple has those, too. But somehow they don't get quite as much press. It's not like any company that wants to maintain a public reputation is going to actually encourage people to go to Best Buy.

    Yes, the Apple stores are pretty, and if you are going to charge luxury-goods prices for your things you have to have the luxury-goods store to go with, right?

    Because they are beautiful stores. Although I agree it is getting tiring hearing about new stores all the time.
