    Apple is celebrating the opening of its first Mexican store with a colorful Hola México banner and a matching construction barrier at Via Santa Fe, the upscale wing of Centro Santa Fe, the largest shopping mall in Latin America. The store, first rumored in January, will be located on the upper level of the shopping mall.

    Apple's sixth retail store in Hong Kong will be located at 418 Kwun Tong Road in the Kwun Tong district. The store will be open seven days a week between 11 a.m. local time and 11:00 p.m. local time. Apple's other five stores in Hong Kong are located at Canton Road, Causeway Bay, Festival Walk, IFC Mall, and New Town Plaza.

    September is shaping up to be a busy month for Apple retail, starting with two U.S. stores that reopened on September 2, another four locations reopening on September 10, and three more to follow on September 16.

    As a US company, it seems really weird to me that it took Apple so long to open a location in Mexico. I feel like you'd go to Mexico before a lot of the European countries that Apple is already in...

    It's about revenue, not proximity.

    As Apple is finding in India, sometimes it has nothing to do with revenue or proximity. Regulations and protectionism sometimes are the reasons why one market takes longer than another.

    It was way overdue, it´s also just a few blocks away from my apartment!! although I won´t be buying anything from them, even with the crazy usd to pesos exchange rate, it´s cheaper to just buy whatever it is I need from Apple on the states when visiting family or going on business.

    Seriously, prices here are hundreds of dollars more expensive over here, specially when it comes to the iPhone or iPad lines (guess they decided the watch was expensive enough as it is)

    Funny, but a Genius Job isn't entry level. Try again.

    We'll make 'em build an Apple store, and make them pay for it, too!

    Honestly with the USD/MXN at 19.34 I think it is not that bad. I think what increases it even more is the 16% tax whereas in many US states it's usually about half that.

    I'm surprised there's any Mexicans left in Mexico.
