Today is a very special day for many Apple Stores around the world. On this day 11 years ago Apple opened their first retail stores.
On May 19, 2001 Apple opened their first store in Tysons Corner Center Mall in Virginia, USA. Since then, Apple has opened over 360 stores across 13 countries!
In Canada, Apple has 22 locations which includes five stores in our own British Columbia, including one that will open later this year in Coquitlam.
If you navigate over to the Siri feature page on Apple’s website, you’ll notice some clever marketing where one of the photos of an iPhone with Siri shows a reminder for May 19 as “Dad’s birthday”. Cute.
As many know, Apple Stores are the best place to buy your Mac, iPod, iPhone, or iPad. It’s also the best place to test drive new products or to just get some free Internet access!
Happy Birthday Apple Retail.
