Apple may have plans for a third Japanese retail store.

The company has begun recruiting staff for an Apple Store in Nagoya, Japan, MacMinute reports. Nagoya central has a population of two million with milions more resident in the surrounding suburbs.

This third Store follows Apple's existing outlet in Tokyo's trendy Ginza shopping district and forthcoming outlet in Osaja, which opens this month.

During Apple's recent financial analyst's call, Apple executives agreed Japan to be one of Apple's lowest-performing markets, indicating the company's management to be focused on turning the market around.

Apple's first UK store on London's Regent Street is reportedly scheduled to open on November 20.
