Apple continues, without haste but without pause, opening official stores in countries where it had no more presence than through authorized distributors. Now it’s up to South Korea, whose capital Seoul will have its first Apple Store from December 30 if there are no unforeseen events truncating those plans.
The news, published in the Korean medium ETNews and reflected in MacRumors, details that the works of the store ended last month. It will be in the neighborhood of Gangnam, whose name you will know by the song that went viral through all the networks a while ago. In the picture you can see its current status.
The store number 500
The store will have two floors, with the modern design of which Angela Ahrendts and Jonathan Ive presume in other stores such as Chicago. In one floor we will have 18 tables showing the products and in the other there will be the area with stools and the giant screen, intended for the ‘Today at Apple’ sessions.
This shop in Seoul, if we are not surprised with a place more than the one that there is no record, will be the Apple Store number 500 in the world. A milestone that will surely be mentioned in the next press conference on the company’s financial results.
