A company which hopes to become the first UK chain of dedicated iPod and accessory stores will open its first branch on November 21.

PopXpress revealed its first location at London's Liverpool Street this morning. The company hopes to have a dozen such stores open by the end of 2006.

Jonathan Cole, CEO of popXpress said: "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 twelve more stores nationwide by the end of 2006."
The first location is set across three floors. The store will carry Apple's full iPod range, accessories and an array of third party products.

popXpress has also commissioned a range of luxury peripherals, including gold and silver-plated iPod nano's and lanyards.
