Apple shares images from Apple BKC grand opening in Mumbai, India
Apple has opened the doors to Apple BKC — the iPhone maker’s first store in India, with images showing the store’s grand opening on Tuesday, where Apple CEO Tim Cook and company VP Deirdre O’Brien welcomed guests to the flagship store located at the Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) mall in Mumbai.
The new store, which is officially open now, features a triangular handcrafted timber ceiling that extends beyond the glass façade to the underside of the exterior canopy, reflecting the unique geometry of the store.
Upon entering the store, customers are greeted by two stone walls and a 14-meter-long stainless steel staircase connecting the ground level and the cantilevered mezzanine.
Apple BKC is designed to be one of the most energy-efficient Apple Store locations in the world, with a dedicated solar array and zero reliance on fossil fuels for store operations. The store is operationally carbon neutral, running on 100 percent renewable energy.
The store boasts Apple’s iconic display tables and avenues with the latest iPhone, Mac, iPad, AirPods, Apple Watch, and Apple TV lineups, as well as accessories like AirTag. Apple BKC also offers Apple Pickup for customers to place an order online and pick up products in-store.
Apple BKC features more than 100 team members who collectively speak over 20 languages.
