Apple just had the most profitable quarter of any company in history.
The company’s ultimate goal is to have 40 stores operating in China by the end of 2016, and to start they’re opening five locations in just five weeks.
Apple started its flurry of activity with the opening of its store in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, this weekend. Situated over two large levels of retail space, the new Apple store is one of the biggest in Asia.
Excited fans turned out in droves to attend the opening of the new store on Saturday.
The store looks absolutely gorgeous.
Apple trademarked its store layout in 2013, so many of its retail locations look similar. This one has an enormous glass front that looks out on the streets of Hangzhou.
You'll notice art from Apple's 'Start Something New' campaign hanging on the walls. As part of the campaign, Apple is featuring artwork created on iPhones and iPads in stores worldwide.
