iPod retail chain launching in UK

PopXpress, a new chain of stores in the UK dedicated to the iPod and iPod accessories, has announced the opening of its first store. Located at London’s Liverpool Street, the shop is the first of 12 stores and will open on November 21.

“We are thrilled to be opening this store concept at such an exciting time in the iPod’s development,” said Jonathan Cole, CEO of popXpress. “The iPod has created a new market for consumer mobile music players and has resulted in an array of accessories. We have been planning the rollout for over a year and our plan is to have a second London West End store open before Christmas and 12 more stores nationwide by the end of 2006.

“...our plan is to have a second London West End store open before Christmas”

Just a minor nitpick, but if they’re referring to the Liverpool Street store as the first, Liverpool St isn’t in the West End, it’s in the City (of London) area.

Otherwise, iPod stores, yay. :)
