Hiring already underway
More details have been narrowed down regarding Apple's upcoming second Apple Store in Perth, Australia. PerthNow reports that the company is already starting to hire for a "South Perth" location. Sources for the site add that the store will specifically located in Booragoon's Garden City, and take over at least two earlier stores near a Kmart.
The facility is run by the US-based AMP Capital Shopping Centres, which says it is "re-mixing" the area, but will not confirm Apple as a future tenant. One of PerthNow's sources explains that the Apple Store is expected to open in the second half of the year; the shop will allegedly be smaller than the existing Perth location, which measures about 600 square meters (6,458 square feet).
