Some Apple Store (retail) related news

The Hong Kong Apple Store at IFC

This came in recently from another source (not the same one as my previous article on the Apple Store in Singapore). Do take it with a pinch of salt though, I’m not sure how accurate this is.

In the latest report released in June on the next batches of Apple Stores to be opened around the world in the following months/year, Singapore is suspiciously absent from the list of countries. Hong Kong’s second store still is on the list though.

Strangely though, around the last one or two months, chatter about the preparations for the local Apple Store has completely stopped, with some people close to the situation commenting that plans might have been delayed due to problems of site allocation and the general reseller situation in Singapore.

However, none of them are absolutely sure that the project has been shelved.

That said, it’s already August and there still isn’t any news on recruitment for a possible Apple Store.

Will we have an Apple Store soon?

Updated: Yes, we will have an Apple Store, just slightly delayed to next year. It will become very obvious in two months’ time.
