Five new Apple Stores to open during iPhone 5 launch week

Apple's retail division is a machine. Five stores are set to open during the iPhone 5 launch week, which means a fresh stream of customers will help break in the employees as they deal with the usual queues -- and hapless wonders who decided to show up at the last minute to buy a 16 GB white iPhone on a whim (pro tip: they'll be sold out by the time the hapless wonders arrive).

The new stores will be in Spain, Italy, Germany, France and the coastal nation of California.
