Apple to open 33 new retail stores in next 60 days

As Apple continues to grow, its impressive presence in the retail space is all but impossible to ignore.

Over the next two months, Apple will make an even stronger push, with plans to open 33 stores. By the end of the company’s fiscal year, Apple will have 363 stores operational.

Apple is set to open its 11th store in Australia, inĀ Penrith (outside of Sydney). Here is an image of the store, set to open this weekend:

A company representatives said:

Our retail offering continues to [grow], with Penrith the 11th store in Australia, since we opened Apple Store Sydney just three years ago. Globally we are planning to have 363 stores in fiscal 2011.

With its Q3 results call just a few hours away, Apple will more than likely be sharing additional details on this expansion and the success of Apple Retail in general soon.
