Apple is reportedly working on expanding their international presence with new Apple Stores in a number of countries.

TheRegister.co.uk reported that Apple Australia has begun recruiting staff for a new store in Sydney's central George Street. Meanwhile Apple UK is recruiting for staff in stores in Milton Keynes Central shopping mall; Solihull; Exeter's Princesshay centre; Brighton's Church Hill Square; Reading's The Oracle site; Glasgow's Buchanan Street; and Essex's Lakeside shopping centre.

Meanwhile Appleinsider reports that Apple is planning a "double-decker flagship" store in Montreal, Canada. The new store will be located at 1321 Ste-Catherine Ouest (location photos) in Montreal's shopping district.

We need one in Bournemouth UK, the media school, art institute and many design and media business runs on macs in the area, I think it would do well if Bournemouth had one, there is a couple Apple resellers, but an official Apple store would be better.

But the news of more Apple stores in the UK and worldwide is good!!

Canada, eh?
Cool, so Toronto and Montreal are covered...

Bring on Ottawa!

(And bring on iTunes TV shows and movies, while we're at it...!)

Nah, time for a west coast store first. :p ;) Bring one to Vancouver or Calgary, that would be excellent... :cool:

Ottawa would be a great future location though as well. I really enjoyed it when I used to live there.

I'm surprised they're going for Lakeside as well (in the UK), especially as Apple have the store in Bluewater, just on the other side of the Thames. Unless they can get a much bigger site at Lakeside and they'll close the Bluewater store.

Sorry Shard but I've got to say it, in terms of retail space, the prices in Ottawa look way more reasonable than Vancouver/Calgary! ;)

oh, I almost forgot to say it: Way to go Montreal!

I thought they were planning on bringing one to Calgary in Chinook shopping centre. It has the 3rd largest revenue of any mall in Canada, with the first 2 being in Toronto. Montreal makes no sense.

a "double decker flagship store" would look hot on Bloor in Yorkville in Toronto. Crazy rent, though.

that is a bit strange, maybe there isn't enough irish buyers? I certainly would have thought Ireland would have had one....

Theres plenty of buyurs. Dublin city is full of Apple users and I cant understand why they dont have a store yet. Not even 1. I'd expect that in Dublin anyway but Apple must have other ideas. Boo to them

Oh for sure, in terms of cost, you definitely don't want to be buying anything in Vancouver or Calgary right now! :eek: But it's Apple's money, not mine, so I say go for it. :D :cool:

The Montreal store wouldn't even be in a mall. And Montreal is still a bigger city than Calgary

Perhaps this is a similar to other manufacturers. Like in Indonesia...where people work in a Nike plant but can't afford to buy the shoes that they, themselves, manufacture. Or like the Island of Fiji. Where something like 35% of the population doesn't have access to clean drinking water yet entire villages may work at the Fiji Water bottling plant. Perhaps its a similar situation in Ireland..... ;)

Saint Catherine's Quest?

The store in Montreal will be on Rue Ste-Catherine Ouest (French for West Saint Catherine Street), not Quest.

Hmmm...apple store Hungary would be useful.
They have two 'apple' stores, but not the 'real' deal in Budapest.

Better yet, itunes availability in Hungary would be cool - the country is in the E.U. but you sure couldnt tell. :)

Peace

Apple certainly do things differently. A flagship store in Montreal?:confused:
With the totalitarian language laws in Quebec, I guess it will have to say "Pomme" on the sign, or they could just use :apple: ;).
I wonder how you say flagship in French? :D

Rich :cool:

Yeah, it's totally totalitarian here. That's why we have no big companies at all.

Wal-Mart couldn't even figure how to translate their name. We still mostly use a barter system, it's simpler
