The rumors have it that an Apple Store will be opening this week at the Halifax Shopping Centre, long with two other stores. This will be the first Apple Store in Atlantic Canada.
We can’t be sure which day of the week yet, however CTV News reported it will be opening two days from August 16th, which would make it August 18th, 2012.
It was guessed that the Halifax Apple Store would open along with the release of the next iPhone, which is expected to carry 4G LTE, NFC, larger screen and more (read about it).
This is great news for future Retail Stores in Halifax (and Atlantic Canada), providing the Apple Store is successful. This could mean for more major brand to reach out to Halifax. For instance, Microsoft has started Microsoft Stores around the United States, and soon in Toronto… they all coincidentally seem to be in shopping centres in which Apple has already opened their store in…
Also Samsung is starting a retail store as well, to better focus on their products. But we shouldn’t forget that just recently two Sony stores closed in the Halifax Regional Municipality (Halifax Shopping Centre, and the Micmac Mall), but that could be because it was Sony.
Does the name Apple instantly bring success (not the fruit, the tech company, of course)? Will you be attending the Apple Store opening?

We have contacted the Halifax Shopping Centre for comment, which we expect to receive tomorrow, as they are closed.
