Two Beautiful New Apple Stores Expected to Open Soon in Singapore
 
Apple's first and only retail store in Singapore opened at the Knightsbridge Mall shopping complex on Orchard Road in 2017. Now, a report says the iPhone maker plans to open two additional stores in the island country later this year.

The Straits Times reports that one of Apple's new stores will open at Jewel Changi Airport within Singapore's main airport. The tourist destination, slated to open April 17, will feature more than 280 shops amid a five-story terraced garden with a 40-meter-tall waterfall cascading from a vaulted glass roof.

The other new store is said to open at the Marina Bay Sands resort next to Singapore's central business district. The dome-shaped store will be situated over water, connected to the luxurious resort with a walkway nestled amid palm trees. The site was previously occupied by night club Avalon.

Both locations look like they will be very unique additions to Apple's chain of over 500 stores around the world, in line with the company's more ambitious store designs in recent years. The report claims the new stores will open in the "coming months," but Apple has yet to announce any grand opening dates.

That'll be great. It'll help reduce the crowd at Apple Orchard.

There will only be more crowd. If ever Apple Store is not mad with crowd, then you know that Apple will be in deep trouble.

2 more stores. Nice. Will help to reduce the crowd in Apple Orchard.

I think the walk-in sales crowd will only increase, but with more stores, it can actually help to reduce the queue to see or better availability to see the Geniuses.

Walk in sales yes, since more stores now.

Service/repair wise, will see a drop which is good. Faster engagement. Since most apple staffs are friendly and like to chit chat with you, which will hold up the next person in line.

A.LAB & QCD can close down. Don’t need them anymore. Atrocious service!

htngwilliam 30-03-2019 06:21 PM

Yeah! Looking forward to their closure. Clap clap clap

Jewel Changi opens to public on April 17th

But it's not listed here https://www.jewelchangiairport.com/c...a/en/shop.html

Hopefully it's cos they're being secretive as usual

Apple tends to only disclose new stores near to opening.

Won't be surprised if the unveil is this Thursday (assuming the store opens the same day as Jewel).

Be prepared to wait for several more months. :s12:

I’ve got a feeling that it might look like the Apple Store at Taipei 101.
