Apple Store Richmond Centre, Upper Canada Mall Grand Openings on Saturday

Back in late March we first reported that Richmond Centre in Richmond, BC, would be opening an Apple Store. That store will have its grand opening this Saturday. This will mark the third Apple Store in the Metro Vancouver area. Every single Apple Store in Metro Vancouver is within walking distance of Skytrain/Canada Line routes.

Another Apple Store will also have a grand opening this Saturday as well. The Apple Store Upper Canada Mall will be set to debut in Newmarket, Ontario.

As in tradition with Apple Store openings, the first 1000 visitors to each store will score a free Apple t-shirt. Are you going to wait in line for any of these grand openings? You might score yourself an iPhone 4!

Here’s a sneak peak at the Richmond Centre store, thanks to @bspence88 via twitter:

    Good, this will make Richmond Center less boring.

  • shit build one in metro town already!

  • I Agree. we need one around Surrey Place.
    With the University built in to the mall, with Dorm rooms.
    An apple store in that Mall would be a GREAT investment in my mind.
    Right on the skytrain line, and one of the primary bus loops too.

  • Put some money Down at your local carrier. You can put down a $50
    deposits to be places on a priority waiting list. Lots of people I
    know have already done it. Check it out my friend, it might be your
    only chance before the HUP ends if that’s intact what your shooting

  • Jordan

    Is it comfirmed there will be some for Sunday?

  • RC_Apple

    Yes plenty in stock

  • RC_Apple

    Yes plenty in stock

  • This might explain the shortage in the other retail apple stores
    people were talking about. Stock piling up for the grand opening for 1
    day of huge success to report to other competitors.
