Maine Mall Apple Store
A new Apple retail store has been confirmed to be opening its doors on September 13th in Maine, alongside the openings of stores in Ohio and Australia. This will be the first official Apple Store to be opened in Maine, which will be located at the Maine Mall in South Portland. The shop should feature all of Apple's normal retail services, such as a Genius Bar, Business Services, Workshops, Personal Shoppers, One-to-One training and Youth Programs.
Even though this will only be Maine's first Apple Store, some have expressed concern that this location could disrupt the current reseller market. The Maine Mall already has a Best Buy outlet which sells Apple products and the concern is that the new Apple Store may drain business.
