Ahead of the grand opening of their first retail store in Korea, contractors have installed new colourful “Nice to meet you.” banners on the store facade located in Garosu-gil, a premium shopping district in Seoul, South Korea.
It was believed Apple was planning to open the store in late December, however as the date has passed and the new banners have been installed, it’s clear Apple is in the final stages of preparing the store for its launch.
Apple first commented on the new store back in January 2017, sharing their excitement about opening their first Apple Store in Korea, one of the world’s economic centers and a leader in telecommunication and technology.
“We’re excited about opening our first Apple Store in Korea, one of the world’s economic centers and a leader in telecommunication and technology, with a vibrant K-culture,” Apple said in a statement on Friday, local time. “We’re now hiring the team that will offer our customers in Seoul the service, education and entertainment that is loved by Apple customers around the world.”
