Lawsuits from Proview, efforts to increase the availability of iPhone 4S and Foxconn controversies maybe giving Apple a headache in China.
However, despite all this, Apple still retains its desire of global retail conquest. As it turns out, just days before the long-awaited iPad 3 will likely make its debut on the world’s stage (according to rumors), Apple will expand its retail presence in the world by opening a store in the beautiful Amsterdam.
With over 350 retail stores now open around the world, Apple is presently less than two weeks away from entering the twelfth country to welcome an Apple store.
On Wednesday, 22 February 2012, Gary Allen of ifoAppleStore.com confirmed that the new facility will open 3 March 2012 on the ground floor and mezzanine of the “historic Hirsch Building in city center.” On the basis of reports from observers at the scene, the store will be as awesome as Apple’s Paris store.
The Amsterdam store has been on the cards for close to two years, with construction having begun in May 2011. Finally, just this week, the words “Coming Soon” were emblazoned across the front of the building. The store would open on 3 March 2012 at 10 AM (local time).
