Apple has announced that its fifth retail store in Beijing, and 27th in China, opens Saturday, November 28 at 10 AM local time. The store will be located in the new Chaoyang Joy City shopping mall at 101 Chaoyang North Road in Beijing's city proper Chaoyang District.

The new store will be open 10 AM-10 PM local time everyday and offer traditional Apple Store services, including the Genius Bar, Workshops, JointVenture, events and seminars. Apple's four other retail stores in Beijing are located at China Central Mall, Sanlitun, Wangfujing and Xidan Joy City.

Apple has opened more than seven new retail stores in China this year, including locations in Chongqing, Dalian, Hangzhou, Hong Kong, Nanjing and Tianjin. The company is committed to expanding its footprint in China, an increasingly important market, under the leadership of retail chief Angela Ahrendts.

Apple opened a new store in Chengdu, China on November 21, less than a month after opening a new Dalian, China store on October 24.

Your statement is completely wrong. Just go to Google Maps, focus on Europe and search for 'Apple Store'.

"Central Europe" refers to the former Eastern Bloc countries. So no, there is no Apple tore in any of those, unless you count the former GDR. Then there the Apple Store in Dresden.

Your statement is completely wrong. There are no Apple stores in Central Europe. There are some in UK, Germany, France, etc, but not a single one in Central Europe.

Washington DC, the capital of the country has a total of 1 store. Honolulu, the furthest US city from DC possible and half the population has 3 stores. Clearly Apple makes decisions based on their own criteria. Sorry for your so-called central europe, but clearly you do not meet whatever Apple's criteria is.

Well since you asked, let me give you my conspiracy theory :D

My guess is that Apple uses several criterions -- Population, Location, Income, Stability, and general propensity to purchase Apple Products. The reality is that even though Honolulu is half the population of DC, it has a High standard of living and there is generally significant money there for spending. It is also the closest US city Asia which attracts a lot of buyers. In Central Europe, the income and stability are still issues. Apple has recently had to adjust prices in previously stable countries due to money fluctuations, and I suspect that this keeps them out of several countries.

Please note -- I actually have no idea. In reality it could be that Angela and Tim play darts on a map over beers to decide. But my theory above makes sense IMHO, although the dart game would be so much more fun to talk about. :p:D:cool:

By now we are even bothered to say we live in one Europe. Which basically is a good thing though.

Yes it make sensse but it is hard to imagine that Prague or Vienna or Warsaw are less stable/less wealthy/less populated/less whatever than for example Dresden...

As someone who lives in DC, you're right, but oh so wrong. We have several stores in the DC Metro area. And most people do not live in DC but in the suburbs. We had at one point the densed concentration of Apple stores, but I believe that's changed. We have (in Distance from DC)

Georgetown
Clarendon
Pentagon City
Bethesda Row
Tysons Corner
Montgomery Mall
Fair Oaks
Reston Town Center
Potomac Town Center

And if you include Baltimore or other areas a little further out, there's a few more. So I would say DC is covered.

Georgetown is the only store that is in the City, so FWIW, I was completely accurate in my statement. And as a fun fact, the Tysons location was the first ever Apple Store in the world.
