Apple adds to store count

Apple will open between 40 and 50 retail stores next year, with new outlets planned in London, Paris and Shanghai.

More than half of the new stores will be outside the United States, as the iPhone manufacturer looks to expand its reach to customers.

Speaking ahead of a store opening in New York, Ron Johnson, Apple senior vice president of retail, said the company expects the holiday selling season to be a good one.

The electronic giant currently operates 280 stores in 10 countries.

The stores, which were first launched in 2001, have proved to be popular with consumers. Apple reported 45.9 million store visitors during the September quarter, up 7% from a year earlier.
