Crowds gathered overnight on Friday to celebrate the opening of Apple’s first store in Taiwan, located in Taiwan’s capital of Taipei at the Taipei 101 mall within the iconic skyscraper previously known as the Taipei World Financial Centre.
Ahead of the opening, Apple noted that customers began lining up outside of the building on Friday evening, and eventually “thousands” visited the store throughout its opening day on Saturday. – The store will be open Monday through to Thursday and Sunday from 11:00am to 21:30pm, and from 11:00am to 22:00pm on Friday and Saturday.
Covering 1,322 square meters and taking up two floors; Apple’s new store in Taiwan has received the Jony Ive treatment, bringing the fresh, spacious store layout seen within multiple new Apple locations across the world.
Apple Taipei 101 will provide a space for everyone to experience Apple’s complete products and services, and to create, share and learn together.
Thanks to our team and all the customers who celebrated the opening of our first store in Taiwan today! https://t.co/Oj51WaBi2u
