Tim Cook opens Apple BKC in Mumbai — the first Apple Store in India
Apple CEO Tim Cook has opened the doors to the first Apple Store in India — Apple BKC, located at the Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) mall in Mumbai where customers are able to explore Apple products and services, access in-store support and attend free Today at Apple sessions.
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.
