I'm outta here: Apple to open new retail store in Sicily

Gotta go, I'm out of here, have to cover a retail store opening. You know how it is. Now which store opening should I cover?
Apple announced a bunch of new store openings: Paris, Vancouver, Sydney, Sicily and New Haven. OK, I'll let someone else cover that New Haven opening, but the others...

The new store in Catania, Sicily, to open on the 24th, will be the ninth App Store in Italy. The others are in Rome, two in Milan, Firenze (Florence), Torino (Turin), Caserta Marcianise (outside Naples), Bergamo and Bologna.

Outside of the U.S., Apple also has nine stores in France, 13 in Australia, 22 in Canada and 33 in the U.K. Apple also has a handful of stores in Japan, China, Germany, Switzerland and Spain. (Our readers Pedro and Bruno are no doubt lobbying for new stores in Lisbon and Luxembourg.)
