Third Italian Apple Store to open on Saturday

Torino store may target student-based economy

Apple is set to open its third retail store in all of Italy at 10AM on Saturday. The outlet is based in the Le Gru shopping mall in Torino, a city in the northern half of the country near the French border, best known for hosting the 2006 Winter Olympics. The store is unusually large next to others in the mall, dwarfed only by Carrefour, OBI and Fnac.

Torino is known as a center of higher learning in the country, and the Apple Store there may depend partly on a regular influx of students and teachers. The company's other Italian locations include one in nearby Milan, and just one in the south, situated in Rome. The country is only just catching up with other major European nations, several of which already have three Apple Stores.

    Not to nit pick...

    Not trying to pick nits here, but I think Turin may be better known as being the home of the Shroud of Turin than the 2006 Winter Olympics..

    Turin also has the largest Egyptian exhibit outside of Cairo..

    The whole region may be better known for being an area of Europe Napoleon "Liberated" from Austria.. Several villages still have streets with both French and Italian names..

    Shrug..
