Apple to Open First Hong Kong Store as China Demand Surges

Apple Inc. is preparing to open its first store in Hong Kong this month as the maker of iPhones and iPads aims to capture the surge in demand from China and its neighboring regions.

The store, located inside the International Finance Center Mall in Hong Kong’s Central shopping and business district, will debut this quarter, said Carolyn Wu, a Beijing-based Apple spokeswoman, declining to specify a date. The Ming Pao Daily reported two days ago, without citing anyone, that it will open the two-story store Sept. 24, spanning 20,000 square feet.
