On Thursday, November 17, Apple will open its eighth retail store in Germany. According to German website, ifun.de, the retail store will be located in the town of Sulzbach. The store's listing has been added to Apple's German website and the error in the graphic that announced the opening date as September 17 instead of November 17 has been corrected.
Sulzbach is an interesting choice for the Cupertino company as the closest Apple retail store is located in nearby Frankfurt. The two stores will be about fifteen miles apart and will cover an area with a relatively small population of 10,000 citizens. Perhaps it's the historic location of the store that attracted Apple to this town. The newest store will be located in the Main-Taunus-Zentrum shopping center which was built 1964 and is one of the first large shopping centers in Germany, says Macerkopf.de. The mall recently underwent an extensive 130,000 square-foot expansion and includes 170 stores.
