The new Broadway Apple Store in Sydney is barely out of its packaging and the company is eyeing off retail space in Adelaide. Now it looks like Apple is adding Canberra to the list, with a job ad on Seek strongly suggesting plans exist for a store in the country’s capital.
The ad, spotted by the Canberra Times, appears to have been posted last month on the 15th and appeals for applicants with an IT support background to work at “an Apple Retail Store”. If that wasn’t a give-away, the title of the ad, “Apple Retail Genius — New Store Opening — Canberra”, says it all, really.
When CT quizzed Apple Australia on the Seek listing, all it had to say was that it had yet to announce a new store. If you want to read between the lines, it didn’t deny plans for a Canberra store, which, going by Seek, would’ve have been quite the fib.
Being selfish for a minute — it’d be nice if Apple could open a store closer to the city centre in Melbourne. I know we have outlets in Chadstone and Doncaster, but Sydney’s spoilt with stores on George St and now, another basically down the road in Broadway. Obviously, cities without stores should take precedence, but can it be on the to-do list at least?
