Apple Store to open doors in Sydney, Australia
Apple’s first retail store in Australia will open on George Street in Sydney on Thursday, 19th June at 5:00 p.m. Located in the heart of the city’s shopping district, the Apple Store Sydney features two floors dedicated to Macs and iPods and a third floor entirely dedicated to service, including the world’s largest Genius Bar for free advice and personal training through Apple’s popular One to One membership.

“We are thrilled to bring the unique Apple retail experience to Australia,” said Ron Johnson, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail. “This breathtaking new store will be the ultimate place for the people of Sydney to shop, learn and be inspired.”

The Apple Store Sydney has more than 80 Macs and 60 iPods available for customers to experience hands-on, as well as a range of third party products.

The store’s staff includes more than 125 locally hired Specialists, Creatives and Geniuses who are ready to share their expertise and offer customers personalised instruction on everything from getting started with a Mac to building their own web page, creating a podcast or making a digital movie.

Every Apple retail store offers customers ways to get the most out of their Mac and iPod, such as free advice at the Genius Bar, popular in-store workshops and special programs for kids. Customers can also book a free appointment with a Personal Shopper to get expert buying advice or help selecting the perfect gift for everyone on their list. The hands-on Apple retail store experience gives customers a chance to test-drive Apple’s entire product line including the all-new MacBook Air™, the world’s thinnest notebook, as well as the widescreen iPod touch.

The Apple Store Sydney also brings Pro Labs to Australia, offering free, in-depth training on Apple’s professional creative applications for digital photography, music production and video editing including Final Cut Pro.

Nearly 350 million people have visited Apple retail stores since they opened in May 2001. Apple now operates 215 retail stores in six countries including Australia, the US, UK, Japan, Canada and Italy.

The Apple Store Sydney is located at 367 George Street, one block North of the Queen Victoria Building.
