    Apple's fourth retail store in Hong Kong, located on Canton Road in the upscale shopping area of Tsim Sha Tsui, will have its grand opening on Thursday, July 30 at 9:00 AM local time, according to a new store listing on Apple's website. The store, at 100 Canton Road in southern Kowloon, will be open Monday through Sunday between 10:00 AM and 10:00 PM.

    The new Canton Road location will be one of the biggest Apple Stores in Asia and marks the fourth store in Hong Kong alongside Causeway Bay, Festival Walk and IFC Mall locations. Apple has been completing the final stages of construction on the store this month, with photos of the store's beautiful white facade with an Apple logo and wavy design surfacing last week.

    Since when did Apple start using/offering embedded Apple Maps?

    They've used embedded Apple Maps on certain sections of their website for a while.

    No it's not. It'll make that road flooded with more mainland Chinese people.

    While HK has its fourth store, really wish Singapore can have its own Apple Retail Store.

    Rent on that location is insanely expensive, but well worth it.

    If it's well worth it, then it's not insanely expensive.

    If it's insanely expensive, then it's not worth it.

    Please clarify.

    Anybody else noticed that the bottom white portion of the wavy facade is the top part of the apple logo?

    The street is filled with luxury brand goods, I even see queues of mainlanders waiting to get into the Louis Vuitton shop - they maintain a one-in one-out policy!

    The rent reflects the sheer volume of sales they'll make there. Should do well...

    Will the Apple products cost less in China because they don't have to be shipped out of the country by Fed Ex aircraft?

    And scalpers (which include Hong Kong people and the mainland Chinese) whenever a new iPhone model launches. Scalpers seize all the iPhones and it's impossible to get one on launch day (or even weeks following that) in Hong Kong.

    Apple products are cheaper in Hong Kong mainly because Hong Kong does not have any sales tax nor any import tax.
