I know, it's a shock to see that Toronto wasn't receiving the flagship. Montreal doesn't even have an Apple store to begin with! Obviously, the Laval store isn't that far off but considering how many post production houses are downtown Montreal, not to mention the schools, it's interesting to see that their needs will be right next door!

Good job, Apple.

Not too much of a shock. Here in Toronto we have so many people spread across a pretty large area. I think we're better served with 4 or 5 decent sized stores spread out over the GTA. I would guess only a matter of time before Square One in Mississauga gets one.

Could it be next to Ogilvy's, at the corner of Crescent? What's there now? All I can see from the Google Maps hybrid view is a large-ish building, but I'm drawing a blank as to what's there.

Anyway, seems like a generally well chosen location no matter what the specific building is. The amount of pedestrian traffic around there is huge.

Too funny, I could catch the afternoon shows, take advantage of the free roastbeef buffet and buy a computer!

Screw that. New York has a Cube, Toronto wants an Apple Orb and Sceptre.

I wouldn't be surprised to see another Apple store or two in the GTA area either - whether a flagship store or not.

Typically, the Apple mall stores seem to be about 6000-7000 square feet, with the flagship stores usually much larger (Regent St. is 26,000 square feet, for instance) so the Montreal store is actually on the small side for a flagship.

I would imagine that the decision to build stand-alone stores/flagship stores vs. stores in malls is based on not only the potential market, but also the available suitable real estate. Clearly, in the case of some of the stores visibility is as much a factor as anything. Cost doesn't seem to be a huge part of the equation, since Yorkdale charges an average of $980/sq. foot, although it's also one of their smaller stores at just over 3,000 sq. ft.

Have no idea how big the stores at the Eaton Centre and Sherway are...

All sorts of info and rumors here (though nothing about the Montreal store - that slipped under the radar!):

Scarily, that is what I had in mind; only difference would be the Apple store would take us to the top with a winning team of products, while the Rogers Centre/CN Tower...
