No New Apple Stores in America

If you live miles from an existing Apple store, your chances of having a new Apple store in your town are zero. As reported by Apple Balla, Apple opened about 30 new stores in 2013, only four of them were in the US. Not one of the new stores meant expansion into the new territory. Most of them are half-hour drive from an existing store, and several just replaced old stores. The last Apple store opened in a new region was in Bakersfield in California in September 2012.

In 2013, Apple opened most new stores in China – four.  Three new stores were opened in Australia, France, Canada and Italy and one in Germany, Sweden and Spain. The only new Apple stores in the U.S. were opened in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia and Utah.

Interestingly, first 71 Apple stores were opened in the States. The next was Japan, and then the first store in Europe in London.  Apple started focusing on opening more stores abroad in 2008, due to the faltering US economy.

In addition to 28 new stores, Apple moved two stores to a different location. The reasons were changing demographics and better lease offers from the new mall developers.  Additional eight stores got enlarged and expanded into adjacent area. Apple store in Stanford was closed and moved to a new location which was getting noticed for its interesting architecture. 

The future does not seem bright if you are hoping to get an Apple store in your town, the one with an attractive display table and Genius Bar. Even the new store in Nanuet in New York State is only a replacement.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
