Vancouver BC Apple Store construction begins

Vancouver store underway

Apple has begun construction on a new retail store on the west coast of Canada, and has already painted covers over the job site to mask the workers' progress. The Cupertino-based company has listed job openings for the future store, which will reside in the Pacific Center Mall in the old Holt Renfrew location. The retail space rests in one of the busiest spots in the city, according to one MacNN reader, and may open in time for the forthcoming iPhone launch in Canada.

Apple today announced that it will open a third retail store in San Francisco located at 2125 Chestnut Street (photos here), and a brand new store in Las Vegas opened its doors for the first time on Wednesday, November 14th.

Plans for two more stores surfaced in late October, with one located in the University Town at the Grande Arcade in Cambridge. Another retail outlet -- which will mark the first Apple Store on the Gulf Coast -- is slated for construction at the Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge. A third store which is already under construction in New York City is masked from public view via fabric around the exterior (shown at right).

The Cupertino-based company today also launched a localized online store in Mexico titled "Apple Store Mexico." The digital storefront is providing free shipping for every order, and greets customers with a welcome message.
