AppleInsider reports today that Apple has announced that it will be opening an Apple Store in the MixC mall in Chongqing, China, this coming Saturday, March 7, making it the third Apple store to be opened in that particular city.
The opening of this new store comes just over a month after Apple opened its second store in Chongqing at the end of January. It’s not known yet exactly what the MixC mall store will look like, but the previous store had a very eye-catching cylindrical glass entranceway that is very similar to that of the International Finance Center (IFC) in Hong Kong.
Shoppers in Chongqing can expect all the usual Apple Retail features in the store, which is just one of 40 Apple Stores in total that Apple is planning to have in China by mid-2016.
Back in January Apple Retail head Angela Ahrendts said that Apple would open five new stores in China before Chinese New Year on February 19, although the company seems to have missed that particular deadline, as only two stores, one in Hangzhou and one in Chongquing, were open by that date.
