Apple Store construction begins in Montreal

Apple Store Canada“The traditional construction barricade is going up in front of 1321 Ste-Catherine W. in Montreal (Canada), indicating that renovation work will begin shortly on the future Apple store. The fixtures and signs for the former Mens clothing store are still visible as workers erect the barricade using aluminum studs,” ifoAppleStore reports.

“It will be the second Apple store in the metro region when it opens, probably before Thanksgiving, 2008.,” ifoAppleStore reports.

Full article, with two photos of the beginning of construction, here.

  1. I would expect that Vancouver will get one soon so that there is one in place before the Olympics in 2010. There are also persistent rumours that Apple is negotiating with the powers-that-be that run the West Edmonton Mall.

  2. “Canada has cities?”
    Sure.
    St John’s … still angry about that insurrection in the 1770s.
    Montreal … a beautiful French city
    Toronto … a modern British city
    Vancouver … from the heart of Southern California
    Edmunton … Texas redux
    You can travel the world and never leave Canada. It’s much like a theme park with each city a different theme. As for your previous company, Rob, the US tried to make that so … a few years back. Didn’t work out. Maybe it was that one-colonist-in-ten who ran north rather than switch?
    With Global Warming, Canada may be seeing a lot of immigrants from the south … you guys ready?

  3. What about Ottawa and Calgary?!?! Ottawa (my hometown) is only the capital of Canada people and Calgary is booming like crazy right now. Apple is being stupid by not putting Apple Stores in these cities. Apple was going to put an Apple Store here in Calgary but for stupid reasons never happened. C’mon Apple lets see retail stores in these cities!!

  4. Good Apple… now please do the same in other countries all around the world. There should be a store in every major city of the world !!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Also, please bring iPhone down to Canada + all your movies to iTunes Canada, and elsewhere too.

    The world is larger than NY.
