Bologna, Glasgow join list of weekend Apple Store openings

updated 12:45 pm EDT, Wed September 14, 2011

Last leg of marathon summer store launches

Two more Apple Stores are set to open this weekend, making for a total of four, checks show. The first is based in Bologna, Italy, and will launch on the ground floor of a building in Via Rizzoli in the city's center. The historic structure has reportedly had its fašade renovated, and should give Apple better coverage in northern half of the country.

The other outlet is opening within the Braehead Shopping Centre in Glasgow, Scotland. The shop will be the city's second Apple Store, but only the third in the country; outside of Glasgow, only Aberdeen has an Apple presence. An Edinburgh outlet should be forthcoming, but little news has emerged since last year.

Already confirmed for this weekend were openings in El Paso, Texas and Hamburg, Germany. The premieres bring Apple toward the finish of a marathon series of store openings, driven in part by a self-imposed deadline at the end of the current quarter. The company has also been expanding or renovating many existing stores, even replacing the cube over top the Fifth Avenue location in New York City.
