Nice piece from San Jose Mercury News:

Not far from the massive glass cylinder and spiral staircase that lead to Apple’s always crowded underground store in the heart of Shanghai’s gleaming financial center of high rises and high-end stores is a shuttered Best Buy. Home Depot has retreated as well, closing a number of outlets as its successful American strategy sputtered in this emerging economic giant. Mattel recently abandoned its flagship Barbie store in this metropolis of 19 million people.

Apple is bucking that trend.
