Third Houston Apple Store
Apple has announced that its third store in Houston, Texas will open this Saturday, June 7th. The shop (not pictured) is located within the Willowbrook Mall, near Dillards and JC Penney, and on opening day will be open from 10AM to 9PM. Sunday hours are 11AM to 7PM, and weekday hours are a consistent 10AM to 9PM. As with other Apple Stores, people will have access to services like the Genius Bar, personal training, and personal shopping appointments; no workshops, however, are scheduled within the first three days of the store's opening.
Apple is meanwhile said to be confirming plans for its first French Apple Store, to be located at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris. "We are delighted that our plans to open a store at the Carrousel du Louvre have been approved by the CEDC," an Apple spokeswoman is quoted as saying. "Our stores meet a huge success in the USA, UK and Italy and we are pleased to be able to enjoy [sic] French customers with the unique experience of Apple Store."
