Apple has confirmed its second Queensland Apple Store, and sixth Australian store overall, will open its doors this Saturday, 14 November at 9:00 a.m. local time.

Located in Westfield Chermside, at the corner of Gympie and Hamilton Roads in the Brisbane suburb of Chermside, the new Apple Store will follow the successful model of similar shopping centre-bound stores already opened in the Gold Coast’s Robina Town Centre, Sydney’s Chatswood Chase shopping centre, and Melbourne’s Chadstone Shopping Centre and Westfield Doncaster centres.

Apple’s largest Australian store remains the flagship George Street, Sydney location. Leaked development plans also recently fuelled speculation that the company may be preparing to open a store in Melbourne’s CBD.

The new store gives Apple the chance to demonstrate its full lineup of products, ranging from the new 21.5 and 27-inch iMacs and new Magic Mouse to its full family of iPods and iPhones.

As is standard at Apple Stores worldwide, the site will have a Genius Bar offering hands-on support as well as regular educational workshops and personalised support via the $129 One to One program – which includes expert assistance in migrating files from an old Mac or PC as well as a year’s worth of personal training sessions and “personal project support” on a range of task-based projects.
