    Ron Johnson, the head of Apple's retail division, spoke to Stephen Hutcheon over the phone about the new $15 million Sydney Apple Store


    Johnson, says:
    - "the store would open for business on Thursday, June 19, at 5pm."
    - 3 floors of store at the the corner of King and George streets in the Sydney CBD.
    - "We're not coming to open a single store in Sydney," Johnson said. "We will open more stores but we are not prepared at this time to talk about additional cities, additional stores."
    ( Melbourne's Chadstone Shopping Centre, N. Sydney suburb of Chatswood)
    - "there's a secret architectural feature that eats into the total size of the store."
    - "one of the biggest stores we've ever built and what I would say for now is that it's a very significant store,"
    - 1st floor to Mac computers, 80 on display, free to use
    - 2nd floor devoted to new products, "such as the iPod" [and you can guess the 3G iPhone too, and anything else extra special]
    - 3rd level is the service floor - Apple's largest "Genius Bar" in the world
    Pro Lab service, which provides in-depth training (with homework!) to professional users. (only available elsewhere in NY or Boston)

    - Will feature a lot of glass, a giant 3m Apple logo suspended over the main entrance and floors paved with stone imported from Italy.

    I read this this morning too. Article doesn't say too much that's interesting but good to have a final date. Still hoping it coincides with the iPhone release. Love to pick one up in person.

    I'm guessing it's a special staircase.

    Yeah, I dont think so. Thats not really a new thing unless the retail guy thinks we are ignorant of whats overseas.

    I wonder if its something like a three story atrium feature besides the Apple.

    that feature is probably an espresso bar - no Sydneysider could go an hour without a lattè.
