Apple Opened their First Singapore Store Today with 237 Staff and Angela Ahrendts Greeting Happy Customers
On Monday we reported that the new Apple Store in Singapore would open on May 27 and on schedule it opened to the public with great fan fare and Apple's classic opening day greeting as noted in our cover graphic. The store is the first of its kind in Singapore, running entirely on solar energy. See our cover graphic in full size by clicking on the image.
The new Apple store called the 'Apple Orchard Road' has a 120-foot glass façade that blurs the line between inside and out, while 16 interior trees continue the city's lush greenery throughout the space.
The Apple Orchard Road store opened this morning at 10 a.m. to thousands of customers who queued to explore Apple's first store in Southeast Asia. Braving the equatorial heat as early as Friday night, customers were greeted by Apple's Angela Ahrendts and the store's 237 employees when doors opened.
The new store is two stories with the second floor used for 'Today at Apple' events and classes. The store is graced with twin curved castagna stone staircases which adds a new flare to the Singapore store as noted below.
