Despite having 42 physical stores throughout the country, the Cupertino-based company continues to work to expand its presence in the country. Apple has announced, through its website, that it will open in Changsha, specifically on the first floor of the International Financial Center, in Furong district.
Changsha is the capital of Hunan province in which more than 8 million people live. The images of this new Apple Store have been published on Weibo and show us both the facade and the interior entrance of the complex in which it is located. Regarding the opening date, it has not yet officially announced.
Since July, Apple has embarked on a big boost in the retail sector with a 78% increase in job offers, which is in addition to what has been done so far this year, according to GlobalData.
The data leader’s job analysis database reveals that Apple’s job postings increased 78% in July 2021, compared to July 2020, and more than 370 of these job postings were related to “Apple Retail ». Interestingly, Apple has also increased job postings that refer to “new products,” from 130 jobs in March 2021 to more than 270 job postings in July 2021.
To this new Apple Store that will open its doors soon in China, we have to add a new one that will open its doors in Wuhan in the month of September, as we informed you a few days ago.
