Apple announced the news on its website.
Victorians are set to get a taste of the Apple retail action, with the company's third Australian store opening in Melbourne's Chadstone shopping centre.
Chadstone's outlet joins Apple's flagship store in Sydney's George Street and a smaller outlet in the city's Chatswood Chase shopping centre. Like every other Apple retail store, it will offer training sessions, workshops and technical support via its Genius Bar.
The Chadstone store will open to the public at 10am on Saturday 13 September. As with the launch events at stores in New South Wales, the first batch of customers will receive a gift from Apple.
The opening of the store has been timed to coincide with an Apple media event that will likely see the announcement of a refreshed iPod line. It was a similar story with the launch of the Apple store in Sydney's CBD, which was unveiled in time for the release of the 3G iPhone.
