Adelaide may get next Australian outlet

Some of Apple's 2012 retail plans should involve New York and Florida in the US, and the city of Adelaide in Australia, according to ifoAppleStore sources. The Carousel Center mini-store in Syracuse, New York is expected to move into a larger space later this year, possibly to one currently under construction near a Clark's in the same mall. The current location is rare in not only being a mini-store, but having its partner full-sized store situated 95 miles away, in Albany. The new Carousel Center shop could be ready by mid-year.

Elsewhere in the state, the Walt Whitman outlet in Huntington Station is also expected to move to a bigger space. Where in its mall it might move isn't known, though, nor is there any kind of timeline.

In Florida the owners of the BayWalk in St. Petersburg claim to have been in "conversations" with Apple, trying to lure the company to the area. The mall was bought by new owners in September, who have promised to invest in needed renovations and upgrades. Currently there is no hint of when the BayWalk renovations will be finished, though, or when Apple might move in.

Turning to Australia, real estate industry sources say that Apple has been talking with the developer of Rundle Place in Adelaide about a possible location. The building is a four-level mall in the city center, paired with an office tower. Construction has only just begun, however, with a 2013 completion date.

    Why does Apple continue to ignore NZ and yet opens stores in smaller and smaller cities like Adelaide?

    Apple Store in Adelaide? Yes, please.

    Let's hope this source is correct about Adelaide getting an Apple Store. If so, I will personally apply for a job at the Genius Bar when they unveil it!
