Joins original Roman store
On Saturday Apple opened its Carosello Carugate Apple Store, only the company's second retail location in all of Italy. The store can be found near Milan, and should help to serve northern Italy, which has not had easy access to Apple products. Apple's other shop is based in Rome, in the south of the country.
Introducing the store was manager Alessandro Bonanno. Crowds at the opening are noted to have been large, including hundreds of people not only from Milan but regions such as Lombardia, Veneto, Piemonte and Liguria. Regular operating hours are from 9AM to 10PM Monday through Friday, and 8:30AM to 9PM on Saturday.
