Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has confirmed that its second official store in Hong Kong will open on September 29th, which is a Saturday. It comes exactly a year and five days after the opening of Hong Kong’s first.
The new Apple Store is located in the Festival Walk mall, Kowloon district, across the harbor from the other and flashier store at the iconic IFC mall. As spotted by 9to5Mac, Apple has a page up (here) that confirms the date and helps locals locate it.
The opening comes during a public holiday in both Hong Kong and China, so the new Festival Walk store should be packed – unless everyone going to it uses Apple’s new maps app for directions and ends up swimming in the harbor .
The new store will also be great news for the scalpers who are said to be buying up 70 percent of all new iPhone 5 models sold in Hong Kong so as to resell them for a juicy profit to keen early-adopters in mainland China.
