Good news for us Apple fans here. Apple has announced that its new Barcelona store is to make its grand opening on July the 28th 2012.

In preparation Apple has been contacting Catalan Apple users to announce that its new Barcelona location will open on Saturday, July 28th at 10 AM, on Passeig de Gràcia, though the location has been known for a good while already. The site is between Plaça Catalunya and Passeig de Gràcia, a prime spot in the city.

This new Apple store opening is notable for its high-profile aforementioned location, secondly for its unique Apple logo and banner, which was much discussed by the press last week, and, last but not least, this is predicted to become one of Apple’s largest Europe-based retail locations.
