First Apple Store in South Australia
Apple is preparing to open a new Apple Store in Adelaide, Australia on May 25 at 10AM. The Rundle Place outlet will not only be Apple's first in Adelaide, but also by extension the first in the state of South Australia, which is otherwise sparsely populated. The company has 19 other stores in the country, most of which are in New South Wales or Victoria.
A unique aspect of the store will be its operating hours, due to legal restrictions on shopping hours. From Monday to Thursday it will operate from 9AM to 7PM; only on Friday will those hours extend to 9PM. On weekends, the shop will close at 5PM, while on Sunday Apple is pushing the opening hour to 11AM.
