There have been no official announcements, but with an obvious telltale sign, the writing seems to be on the wall. Edmonton will likely soon have its 2nd Apple Store, located at Southgate Centre, 51AVE and 111St NW in South Edmonton. The store will be not far from the south entrance kitty-corner from Orange Julius and across from Kingâ€™s Jewelers.
There is no indication as to when the store will be opened, but chances are it will be this summer. It might even be on Canada Day â€“ the same day the West Edmonton Mall Store opened in 2008 â€“ But of course this is pure speculation.
One might have expected the store to be located at the shopping jungle at South Edmonton Common, but perhaps with the opening today of the new LRT (Light Rail Transit) Station, after 4 long years of construction, Southgate might have been just the right choice.
There are currently 14 Apple retail stores in Canada, 5 in and around the Toronto Area, 3 in and around the Greater Montreal Area, 2 in Vancouver, 1 each in Ottawa, Winnipeg and Calgary and of course Edmonton.
