Apple Store Monterey
Apple is set to open another retail store in California, this time in Monterey. The new store is located in the Del Monte Shopping Center which recently received a $20 million renovation. The grand opening is set for August 9th which coincides with the opening of the new Chatswood Chase store in Australia, the second in the country. This will be the first official Apple Store in the Monterey area and the 39th in all of California.
The store will feature all of the typical services including a full Genius Bar, One to One training, personal shopping, workshops and youth programs.
The new store bolsters Apple's retail growth story, despite an admitted economic slump. Sales of Macs have continued to grow an are reportedly up 44 percent from last year.
