Apple Store Opens in Richmond Centre – Richmond, BC, Canada

Apple opened their third store location in the Greater Vancouver area today at Richmond Centre.  They were giving away Apple t-shirts to the first 1,000 customers that visited the store.

Why would Apple open their third location in Richmond?  Well, it obvious to me.  Richmond has a high demographic of affluent shoppers.  Richmond Centre is undergoing a major renovation which is also indicative that they recognize significant investment and change is required to keep the local residents of Richmond happy and wanting to continue spending their money locally.

I took the opportunity to check it out and couldn’t believe how many people were standing in line.  Guess I shouldn’t be that surprised given the demand for the iPhone 4.  Thought I’d take a few pictures on my iPhone 4.
