Expands retail outlets to Welsh capital
Apple is set to launch a new Apple Store in the Welsh capital of Cardiff, according to an announcement. The St. David's 2 outlet is atypically scheduled to open on a Thursday, specifically October 22nd at 10:30 AM. Apple most often opens stores on Saturdays, and half an hour earlier. The Cardiff location may nevertheless attract a number of shoppers, as the surrounding area is believed to have 2.9 million residents, and an average of 27 million visitors every year.
Regular store hours are listed as 9:30AM to 8PM for most of the week, with a 6PM close on Saturday evenings. Sunday hours are 11AM to 5PM. Some workshops have already been scheduled, beginning with an introduction to Macs on October 24th. Sessions on subsequent days will cover topics including iMovie, iDVD and Snow Leopard.
