We first reported on it back in May last year, and now Apple’s latest Beijing store has finally opened.

The store is located in China Central Place, a large mall area on the east side of Chaoyang district which is home to a number of high-fashion and other luxury brands.

While a new Apple Store is always worth reporting on, making this event more notable (particularly to consumers who live locally) is that it coincides with Apple’s Chinese New Year one-day sale — nicknamed Red Friday.

We reported on the sale (which is also available to customers in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and Taiwan) on Wednesday this week. Since Apple isn’t a company that regularly offers reductions on its products through official channels it is well worth taking advantage of if you live in any of the aforementioned territories.

And, hey, if you’re Beijing-based and have the chance to check out the new Apple Store, so much the better.
