Apple opens second Italian retail store

updated 11:30 am EDT, Mon September 7, 2009

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.

    Is this the scene Microsoft dreams about when they open stores? Look at that crowd. Pretty amazing.

    Nice Crowd. Roma is in Central Italy; Sicilia is i

    It's very nice that Apple opened a second store in Italia, but the Rome store is not in the South which would mean in the foot or in Sicilia.

    As always, an Apple store opening is always an occasion to celebrate by shopping inside in order to reward a company that makes wonderful products.

    I predict that the MS store will have long lines too. It's just that they will occur every day at tech support, because it will not have a purchase section.
