Milan Apple Store expected
Apple is now hiring for a retail store in Milan, official listings have revealed. While the company has not officially announced a Milan location, the company is offering a full roster of positions for a future shop, including cashiers, concierges, Genius Bar staff and business sales representatives. The store would be only Apple's second retail outlet in Italy, complementing a flagship store in Rome.
The listings provide no indication of when the store will open, or its exact location. It was previously rumored that a shop would open on Corso Vittorio Emanuele, but it is currently believed that Apple has chosen to sign a different lease. Past hiring practices point to a launch within several months, although Apple has said that it will open just 25 stores in 2009.
