It’s been a long time coming, but Apple’s Brisbane retail store in Australia is set to open its doors on Friday, Jan. 17, at 10 a.m. local time.
You’ll remember that the Brisbane Apple Retail Store suffered a delay in its construction during 2013, which was shortly resolved before construction resumed as normal back in August. Then in December we heard that the store could launch as early as Jan. 10–11, given that barricade signage appeared towards the end of December.
Now, however, Apple has confirmed that its Brisbane store is set to open for the general public on Jan. 17. The news appeared at the Cupertino, Calif. company’s Apple Retail Store website, where Apple notes that the Grand Opening hours for the retail store will be 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. (local time).
Usually, the new Apple Retail Store will be open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
Apple is continuing its efforts to open more Apple Retail Stores the world over, yet if a recent report has it right the company’s retail locations have been losing steam as of late. But could Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s incoming senior vice president of Retail, help change this?
