Halifax Apple Store Construction Progress Update [PICS]


More Canadian Apple retail store updates are here (earlier we learned the London Apple Store had been confirmed via job postings), and this time it is for the all but confirmed location set inside the Halifax Shopping Centre in Nova Scotia.

Earlier this month it was reported by numerous sources the store was definitely coming, and now recent construction photos of the location have been provided to us via @Durwin.ย The proposed location is taking place at the end of the mall near Sears, and it appears an escalator has been removed to accomodate for the Apple Store.

Here is a picture of the retail space where the escalator was removed:

โ€ฆand here is the view of the second floor, where the Apple Store is rumoured to go; @Durwin notes they appear to be extending the space of this floor:

There hasn’t been an official confirmation about the Halifax Apple store location, but all voices on the ground have confirmed it.

    I know what the hell right? Some of the people who commented before me sounded exactly the same. Apple is just a gadget company and all its products are completely copied. I am sorry to disappoint all you hardcore Apple fans but its a fact.If you fail to disagree with me I can’t force you to be right. Go check online, other high tech companies came up with all the technology 10 years ago which Apple is trying to promote now as if it were their own. I detest such kind of people.
    You all know why Apple is opening up its own store? Let me enlighten you. Samsung, Nokia, and other phone manufacturing companies, every month or couple months are coming out with much better smart phones faster and cheaper than Apple counterparts. On a sidenote, its not just happening with iphone but mac computers too. Lenovo ultrabook totally beats Macbook pro and air. Apple is frustrated as other companies are cutting into their profit shares so it sent out notices to all retail stores in North America not to sell Samsung products or atleast one of their lines that is truly threatening their frail market. But why should the retail stores care so they ignored the notice. Apple now even frustrated does not know how to advance it sales even after its vast amount of adversiting. It starts by opening up retail stores because it thinks other stores are not promoting their products.
    Now tell me, would people buy Apple products if they set a store? Simple no. Surely lots of people will come and visit because its all fantasy but no sensible guy/girl would buy from their store. Apple is definitly going go down in the near future because setting up the shops and paying the workers would cost lot of money. If there is no substantial rate of return for this investment it is useless.
