Melbourne Apple Store

The first of Apple's planned retail stores in Melbourne, Australia has been confirmed. Although talk had originally pointed to a streetfront store, the beginning of Apple's presence in the city can be found inside the Chadstone Shopping Center, where a construction barrier marked "Apple opening soon" has been erected in front of an outlet next to Nike Women. The location is said to be two to two-and-a-half times wider than most normal ones in the mall.

Chadstone is home to some 450 shops and restaurants, and recently underwent an $88 million renovation which may have lured Apple in. Notably, there is already an authorized Apple reseller in the mall, Computers Now -- its operators are reportedly denying any suggestions, however, that they are the ones engaged in the construction, or that they will be moving in response to a direct Apple presence.
