According to Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung it is 99.9 percent sure that Apple will open a series of Apple Stores in Germany.
According to the paper's report, Apple Germany is looking at retail locations in Munich, Hamburg, Cologne, Berlin and possibly Frankfurt, too.
To date in Europe, Apple has only opened stores in the UK, but it is known to be planning to open a retail venture in Rome. A variety of Apple-branded stores - typically called Apple Centres - are maintained by the Mac maker's reseller partners throughout the continent.
The first store would be opened before the end of this year.
