Future Apple Store Openings

18 10 2008

A critical figure will emerge from Apple’s conference call next Tuesday, when the company discloses how many new retail stores will open during fiscal 2009. The number will not only signify the electronics maker’s commitment to reach even more customers, but will represent a wager -big or small- on a world economy in turmoil.

Chief financial officer Peter Oppenheimer traditionally provides the number during his review of the retail operation, and his forecast has been in the range of 35 to 40 stores almost every year in the past. In fact, the number of grand openings has ranged from 32 to 46 until last year, when it totaled 50.
