New Job Listings Point Towards Apple Retail Stores Launching in Brazil and Turkey
In its previous financial call, Apple said it was planning to open 30-35 new retail stores in the next 12 months, with 75% of those stores being located outside of the United States. Recently surfaced job listings point towards at least two of the new stores being located in Brazil and Turkey, countries which donít have any official Apple retail stores as of yet.
Originally discovered by Brazilian website MacMagazine
and later confirmed by the folks at The Next Web
, the job listings are for positions such as Business Managers, Geniuses, Inventory Specialists and Store Leaders. It was also confirmed that at least one of the stores will be opening in Rio de Janeiro and the other in Istanbul. It should be noted though that the position for a Market Leader in each country suggests that more stores are to follow (in each country).
Brazil in particular is an important emerging market, one that is currently seen being Apples go-to target when it comes to increasing the Cupertino California companyís global share. Other important emerging markets include Russia, India, and China.
At the rate that Apple is moving, the upward trend of sales and growth seems like it will continue; only time will tell though.
