Apple Retail Surpasses 1 Billion Visitors, Plans New Store Every 50 Hrs

Apple today stated that Apple Retail has seen over 1 billion visitors and plans to have opened 363 stores by its fiscal year's end, according to a Current.com.au report.

The site spoke with Apple following the announcement that the company would open its 11th Australian Retail Store in Penrith.

"Apple Retail has been in business for 10 years. During this period, we have had over 1 billion visitors through our doors, many of whom are new to the Mac, as the Apple Store is the best place to learn about all the latest products from Apple," said a company spokesperson.

When asked why Apple stores are so popular, Apple replied:

"Service is the hallmark of every Apple Store and the response from customers has been overwhelming. We had over 1 million customers sign-up for our Personal Setup offering last quarter alone.

Looking to the future, Apple plans on adding to its current 330 stores at a rapid pace:

"Our retail offering continues to growth, with Penrith the 11th store in Australia, since we opened Apple Store Sydney just three years ago. Globally we are planning to have 363 stores in fiscal 2011."

Considering that Apple's fiscal 2011 ends of September 25th, that means the company plans to open a new retail store on average every 50 hours.

Maybe they will put one in Arkansas so I don't have to drive to another state every time they release a new idevice.

Maybe they'll bring one nearer my city too instead of having to go to the capital for the nearest apple store...
