Brazil’s first Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) retail store will open in early December according to a report from Brazilian technology magazine Info Exame via MacRumors. The magazine reports that the Apple Store will be located in an upscale shopping mall on the west side of Rio de Janeiro.
Apple has been seeking employees for its Brazilian retail location for almost a year. In November 2012, Apple posted several job listings for Rio de Janeiro, including Business Manager, Store Leader, and Genius.
However, the Cupertino-based company has apparently had trouble finding enough qualified applicants. According to Info Exame, the Apple Store was originally scheduled to open in July but had to be delayed due to “difficulties in recruitment.”
