Sorry if this has been posted but I haven't seen it anywhere else in the forum.

Job listings for an Apple Store in South Perth have gone up.

Not sure if they mean the suburb (South Perth) as I have a hard time thinking of somewhere suitable. They may be referring to somewhere south of the river - some people are saying Garden City is a possibility. Wouldn't surprise me if they opened one up in Karrinyup next.

Thats interesting, would probably expect it to be at Carousel though. Unsure what Apple has against Adelaide but imagine people there would be disappointed that Perth may now be it's second store.

Pretty sure at the end of the day, it just comes down to stats:

Perth is:
(a) A much larger city;
(b) Together with Brisbane, the fastest growing capital cities in Australia in terms of population and GDP;
(c) Filled with plenty of FIFO workers with lots of cash to splash on shiny Apple toys.

Apparently the main issue with an Adelaide store is they could not find a suitable storefront (from memory they require a minimum 15 metre width store?) in the Rundle Mall or surrounds area.

With the amount of money already hoarded, im sure they could buy/develop any plot they wanted to *imo*

And I'm 100% confident (with good authority) that it is in Garden City.

There are also three shops next to each other being renovated at the same time.

I agree it's Garden City - the infamous plain black boarding used by Apple has gone up (Garden City always use white boardings with the name of the store to come). They have also created space above the three stores mentioned by yagankiely, so it'll be a double storey store.

:)

PS. Jobs for new Perth store also posted on Seek today.

Good news! Garden City has cheaper and easier to find parking than the city.
