The AppleInsider reveals the possible expansion of Apple Stores in Japan.
As part of its overseas retail initiative, Apple has maintained a Japan retail ‘Hit List,’ which currently references up to 27 prospective or secured storefronts, including 6 more in Tokyo and 2 others in Osaka. Each is assigned a deployment priority ranking, which coincides with surrounding district population figures also present in the documents.
Shortly after rolling out its high-profile Shinsaibahi, Osaka store, sources believe that the company will begin tackling its remaining ‘A-list’, which includes three 7,000-square-foot stores tentatively planned for Shinjuku, Tokyo; Shibuya, Tokyo; and Umeda, Osaka. A fourth location set in Harajuku/Omotesando, Tokyo would occupy a 4,000-square-foot space.
They also mention a possible store in Ikebukuro. Read the rest of the article here.
