Continues expansion efforts outside of Shanghai and Beijing
A new Apple Store will open in Chongqing, China on July 26 at 10AM local time, according to the company's website. The outlet is situated in the Paradise Walk Mall; it should be a prominent landmark in the area, rising at least three stories tall with a massive glass facade similar to its twin in Shanghai. At present, that facade is covered with a "coming soon" logo featuring colored dots sprayed out from the building's Apple logo.
Unlike many of the company's other locations, the Chongqing outlet will be open from 10AM to 10PM all week. It will be the 11th Apple Store in China, but one of just a few outside of Shanghai and Beijing. Other cities with a footprint include Chengdu, Shenzhen, and Hong Kong.
