Flagship Apple Central World store officially opens in Thailand
Apple has officially opened the doors to its flagship Apple Central World store in Bangkok, Thailand.
To limit store occupancy, today’s opening is by appointment only, with guests required to book a time slot online to visit the store. Visitors are required to undergo temperature checks, wear a face mask while in the store and maintain distance between themselves and those around them.
Boasting a cantilevered unique Tree Canopy roof, a cylindrical elevator and an outdoor plaza, Apple Central World, Deirdre O’Brien, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail + People, said “We are excited for visitors to discover this truly one-of-a-kind store in Ratchaprasong. – With our future Today at Apple sessions and a phenomenal team ready to welcome the community with exceptional service and support, we can’t wait for our customers to experience Apple Central World.”
“Apple Central World’s distinctive architecture is brought to life with the first-ever all-glass design, housed under a cantilevered Tree Canopy roof. Once inside, customers can travel between two levels via a spiral staircase that wraps around a timber core, or riding a unique cylindrical elevator clad in mirror-polished stainless steel. Guests can enter from the ground or upper level, which provides a direct connection to the Skytrain and the city’s largest shopping center. The outdoor plaza offers a place for the community to gather, with benches and large Terminalia trees surrounding the space.”
Early visitors to the store have received a Central World tote bag, a custom Apple logo sticker, and an illustrated guide to everything Apple has to offer in Thailand, according to 9to5Mac.
