The Apple Store is the technology playground for iDevices. Operated officially by Apple, you get the full experience from its product showcase, genius bar and workshops to help you use your products better. As part of its expansion, the Cupertino company appears to be opening its very first store in South East Asia.
Pure Fitness, a gym in Singapore has recently informed its members that they are shutting down its Knightsbridge outlet on Orchard Road. This move apparently is to pave way for a new Apple Store that’s set to open in 2016.
Apple has yet to issue any formal announcement but it shouldn’t come as a surprise as they have been searching for a prime spot along Orchard Road. And to clear any doubt if this is another authorised reseller, the notice had specifically mentioned “Singapore’s first Apple Store”.
Currently the closest Apple Stores around us are located in China with 20 stores, Hong Kong with 4 stores, Japan with 9 and 22 in Australia. Since Singapore has been among the first wave countries to receive the latest iPhone, iPad and even the Apple Watch, it is about time for the little red dot to have its own official on ground presence. For the crazy first adopters in Malaysia, you now have a new place to queue up on the eve of launch day.
