The sixteenth and seventeenth Australian Apple Stores will open on Saturday September 8.
Number 16 will be in Canberra's Canberra Centre (Bunda Street), and number 17 in Perth's Garden City Shopping Centre (Booragoon).
Both of the new stores are scheduled to open at 10am local time.
Lines of customers keen to be among the first in a new Apple Store are likely to be features of the openings, along with much hooting and hollering, a run-past by store staff, and giveaways.
Apple's web site indicates that additional stores may open in the reasonably near future in Melbourne's north west and south east suburbs.
The company already operates three Melbourne stores at the Chadstone, Doncaster and Southland shopping centres.
In addition, there are eight Apple Stores in New South Wales and three in Queensland.
