Apple to Open Third Netherlands Retail Store This Saturday, August 9 [Mac Blog]

Apple has announced on its website (via ifoAppleStore) that it will open its third store in the Netherlands this Saturday, August 9 at The Hague’s Passage mall. Job listings for the store were posted over a year ago, as the location itself will join Apple’s stores in Haarlem and Amsterdam.

According to One More Thing [Google Translate], the new location in The Hague will also feature the first 360-degree Genius Bar, which will be accompanied by Apple’s trademark glass exterior and retail store aspects.

Apple’s newest retail store in The Hague will open at 10 AM this Saturday, August 9. As with the company’s other retail openings, it is expected that those first in line will receive a free t-shirt commemorating the new store.

Apple Retail Roundup: New Stores Coming in Germany, Netherlands, UK [Mac Blog]

A number of tidbits related to Apple’s retail store initiative have surfaced in recent days, with Apple apparently making progress on several new stores in Germany and the Netherlands as it opens a new store in the United Kingdom this weekend.

iFun.de reports [Google translation] that workers have begun removing scaffolding and barriers outside of Apple’s first Berlin store. The site reported over the weekend [Google translation] that the store appears set to open during the first weekend in May.

Meanwhile, a tipster in Hanover, Germany reports that Apple’s delayed retail store project there appears to be seeing some progress, with signs of work showing up behind the plain black barricades typically used by Apple.

Over in the Netherlands, One More Thing reports [Google translation] that Apple has posted job listings for upcoming stores in The Hague and Haarlem, suggesting that Apple is moving forward on those projects. Grand openings are, however, likely six months away based on Apple’s usual hiring timetables.

Of more immediate concern, Apple will be opening a new store in the United Kingdom this Saturday, with its Drake Circus store in Plymouth scheduled to open to the public at 9:00 AM. The store will add a new shopping option for residents of South West England, with the new store location roughly 45 miles southwest of the closest current store in Exeter.

In one final development, Apple’s expanded and relocated Southdale retail store in Edina, Minnesota will also be opening on Saturday.
