Apple dips toes into Scandinavian retail
A Swedish site, Allt om Mac, says it has identified where Apple plans to open its first retail outlets in the country. One is expected to debut September 15th in the Stockholm suburb of Täby, specifically in the Täby Centrum mall. The second is said to be coming to Malmö as a part of the Emporia mall, which is still under construction. The Apple Store there is forecast to open on October 26th; in both cases, the shops should measure somewhere around 600 to 650 square meters, or between 6,458 and 6,997 square feet.
The report does conflict with rumors from late last year, but relatively little has been heard about Apple's plans for Sweden since then. The company currently has no retail presence at all in Scandinavia, even though nearby countries like France, Germany, and the UK already have a number of stores.
