Apple Squeezes the Most From Its Retail Stores


Plus, the company is opening stores in Brazil and Turkey.

The report noted that 90% of retail sales still occur in brick-and-mortar stores the United States, showing that most customers want to test a product and converse with store employees and specialists to get advice before making a purchase.

Apple Stores in Brazil and Turkey

MacRumors reported today that Apple has posted job openings for new retail stores in Brazil and Turkey. The stores have not opened yet nor has Apple officially announced the opening of these stores. However, Apple's website lists details about open positions in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, and Jundiai in Brazil and in Istanbul, Turkey.

The opening of a store in Jundiai would make sense since Foxconn (TPE:2354) already assembles Apple's iPhone 4 and iPad 2 in the city.

Twenty-two job openings exist in Brazil, and the positions include everything from an accountant and tax manager to an inventory specialist and a store leader. Eighteen similar positions are available in Turkey.

In 2013, Apple plans on opening 75% of its estimated 30 to 35 new retail stores in countries other than the United States. Apple recently opened its first store in Stockholm, Sweden, making it the fourteenth country to receive an Apple store.
