According to information published on Apple's Chinese official website, its third retail store in Beijing will be opened at Wangfujing on October 20, 2012.

This is also Apple's sixth retail store on Chinese mainland, and the four-floor outlet will become the largest Apple Store in Asia.

This new store is less than one mile away from Tian'anmen Square and the Forbidden City. Once completed, its area will be bigger than the two existing Apple Stores in Beijing.

The new store will be officially launched at 09:00 on October 20, 2012, and its business hours are from 10:00 to 22:00 each day.

Prior to this, Apple opened five retail stores on the Chinese mainland: the Beijing Xidan Joy City store; Beijing Sanlitun store; Shanghai Nanjing East Road store; Shanghai Pudong store; and Shanghai Hong Kong Plaza store.
