  • Apple Opens the Doors to its MacArthur Chambers Store in Brisbane, Australia

    Apple’s long-awaited store in Brisbane, Australia finally opened its doors to customers today. The flagship store was originally announced in 2011 but several problems with contractors and the historical nature of the site delayed completion. Customers started waiting in line almost 15 hours before the store was scheduled to open its doors at 10:00am local time, with many hoping to score one of the limited edition Brisbane store t-shirts that were handed out. The dedicated fans were allowed in by store employees who greeted them with high-fives and cheers.

    Store leader, Jonny Walker, told PerthNow that he is proud of what Apple has done with the historic site. He said the following regarding the matter:

    We are so proud of this store at Apple, it's got a stunning space now and we're really extremely proud to call it our home. When we took over the store a lot of the original historic elements were missing or in disrepair. What we've done is we've painstakingly restored it to its original glory.
    The store is located within the impressive MacArthur Chambers building, which was General Douglas MacArthur’s South West Pacific headquarters for the Allies during World War II. The retail space occupies the entire bottom floor of the building and includes 200 display units, staffed by over 100 employees according to a report by Brisbane Times, which toured the location before it opened.
