Charlotte outlet brief drive from Apple datacenter

Apple has set its sights on another two retail stores, this time in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Burnaby in the Canadian province of British Columbia. The Charlotte store will be the city's second, and open on the second floor of the Northlake Mall. Building permits have been issued and job listings are now being posted, effectively confirming plans. Charlotte is, notably, just 30 miles away from Apple's massive North Carolina datacenter, which was built to support iCloud.

Burnaby is a suburb in the Vancouver area, which already has three Apple Stores including one in Richmond and two in Vancouver proper. The Burnaby outlet is said to be coming to the MetroTown, the second largest mall in Canada after the record-breaking West Edmonton Mall in Alberta. MetroTown is is home to some 450 retailers, and even includes two 28-story business towers. Apple job listings are already in effect.

Both the Burnaby and Charlotte stores should open by the end of the year, or at least before the end of November. Apple prefers to have outlets ready ahead of Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year in both Canada and the US.

    Um, no. There is no Canadian Black Friday as our Thanksgiving is in October. The busiest sales day would be Boxing Day (Dec 26).
