The spectacular glass cylinder store in Shanghai’s Pudong district is now their most profitable store.

Apple’s retail boss Ron Johnson may be leaving for greener pastures (Apple doesn’t share his enthusiasm), but that won’t affect the company’s aggressive retailing strategy aimed at putting their iconic stores in more countries around the world. Sweden could be next, according to Market.se which quotes local landlords claiming that Apple is planing to open a brand new brick-and-mortar store in Stockholm, Sweden.

Furthermore, Apple seems to be in the process of beefing up its full-time employee roster, possibly for the Stockholm store. The Stockholm store would be the first Apple-operated retail spot in Sweden and a new country for Apple Stores.  Apple currently only has a retail partner store locator for people looking for bricks+mortar.
