Apple plans Saskatchewan store; Houston shop hit by bullets

Apple not singled out in Houston gunfire

Apple is planning to build a new Canadian store in the city of Regina, Saskatchewan, ifoAppleStore reports. The outlet will be based in the Cornwall Centre shopping mall, and fill a substantial hole in Apple's Canadian coverage. While Regina is a comparatively small city, the store will fill in a 700-mile gap. To the west and east the closest stores are in entirely different provinces, which has so far left Saskatchewanians no choice but to shop online or at resellers.

When the new store might open is uncertain. City planning documents are said to confirm the store's existence, but even the location within the mall isn't specified. Based on regular construction schedules, the outlet could be ready by November.

In the US, meanwhile, Apple's Highland Village store in Houston, Texas was hit by gunfire early Monday morning. Apple was not singled out; several businesses in the area had their windows shot out between 4:40 and 5:40AM, ranging from gas stations to a luxury furniture store. No one was injured, although shots may have come close to hitting a worker and a customer at a Valero gas station. Highland Village is one of Apple's newest stores, having launched in March at the same time as the new iPad.

    How about Victoria!

    Victoria BC needs an apple store. Vancouver is too far away and requires an expensive ferry ride.

    Hopefully they can also open a store in Winnipeg that isn't staffed by people who are pretty but have no clue what they're talking about. (I absolutely can't stand the Apple store in Winnipeg. The last time I was there I dealt with three Geniuses, one of them was great, the other two made me want to beat them with the bottom case of my MacBook which they weren't willing to cover even though it was a faulty part.)

    See? If we just had more guns, this stuff wouldn't happen. ;)

    wr11 is absolutely right. Victoria BC desperately needs an Apple Store. Sure there's one in Vancouver but the ferry ride is absurdly expensive. Several Universities and lots of artists on Vancouver Island mean that they would have a big captive audience. No disrespect to Regina, but Victoria is WAY overdue for an Apple Store.
