Apple to open new store in Dublin, Ireland?

Dublin Apple Store rumored

Apple is looking to open a new store in Dublin, Ireland, says the Sunday Tribune. Apple is said to have hired property advisor Jones Land LaSalle to find a location, with urgency being linked to falling rent in Ireland, triggered by the current worldwide recession. The Tribune suggests that Apple is likely searching for a building with about 6,000 square feet split between two levels.

Scouting efforts are said to be concentrated on the former Dunner Stores space, and the former Habitat store, both of which are on Grafton Street. The street is considered one of the top 10 retail locations in the world, and as such has extremely expensive leases. Other retailers including Puma and Abercrombie & Fitch's Hollister brand are also rumored to be interested in purchasing space in the neighborhood.

Should Apple open a store in Dublin, it will be the first in Ireland proper. A store in Belfast, Northern Ireland opened in September of last year.

    I visit Dublin pretty often, and I've always been surprised that there wasn't a flagship Apple Store on Grafton Street. It would be a great place for one.

    Also, it's Dunne's Stores, not "Dunner" ;)
