Shenzhen Apple Store on Nov. 3rd; new Palo Alto shop opens

updated 10:41 am EDT, Mon October 29, 2012

Apple branches out of Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong

The first Apple Store in Shenzhen, China will launch on November 3rd, the company has announced. The Yi Tian Holiday Plaza outlet will open its doors at 9AM local time on Saturday, but typically operate between 10AM and 10PM. On Fridays and Saturdays the shop is set to stay open an extra half-hour.

The location is Apple's first in China outside of Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. Shenzhen though is home to the biggest campus for Foxconn, Apple's main manufacturing partner. The area around Holiday Plaza is relatively rich, which should help supply Apple with a regular stream of customers.

Over the weekend, meanwhile, Apple opened a new store in Palo Alto, California (pictured). The shop at 340 University Avenue measures some 15,030 square feet, and uses a design consistent with more modern outdoor Apple Stores, including an arched glass roof. The building has been estimated as costing some $3.15 million dollars.
