Apple confirms new Paris, NYC store openings in November

updated 08:50 pm EDT, Mon October 19, 2009

Projects appear to be continuing after delays

Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer confirmed plans to open several new retail locations in France and New York City. The executive, speaking at an investor conference call, mentioned that the company is finally ready to reveal the store at Carrousel du Louvre in Paris. Although the project was initially acknowledged by Apple in June of last year, reports early this year suggested construction had begun to stagnate.

The Louvre location is said to occupy two levels and approximately 7,700 square feet of floor space. Apple will also be opening a second outlet in France, potentially the rumored Rue HalÚvy store near the Garnier operahouse. Active construction at Rue HalÚvy lead to speculation that it would open before the Louvre location.

The upcoming New York City location is located on 67th Street and Broadway in Manhattan's Upper West Side. Apple has also established a presence on Fifth Avenue, 14th Street, SoHo and Staten Island.

COO Tim Cook highlighted the company's recent retail success, with revenue up 20 percent for international locations. Several European countries showed particularly strong growth for Apple, with many reporting gains of 30-40 percent.

The NYC and Paris outlets are said to be ready for grand openings sometime next month.
