Fairfax, Shanghai retail

Apple is expanding its retail presence in two drastically different locations. China Tech News states that the company has partnered with Best Buy to open its first Chinese store-within-a-store, located in a shop in the Xuhui district of Shanghai. Apple's section occupies 538 square feet, and contains a typical assortment of products, excluding only a few notable items such as the iPhone. Though Apple has expressed its desire to sell the device in Asia, it has yet to announce any formal deals with carriers.

In the United States the company is preparing to open another full retail store, based in Fairfax, Virginia. The shop is located inside the Fair Oaks Mall, between Express and Talbots outlets, and is set for a grand opening on Saturday, April 26th. The store will feature Apple's now-standard range of customer services, including workshops, a Genius Bar, and personal shopping and training appointments.
