Shortly after Angela Ahrendts, Senior Vice President of Retail at Apple, shared a teaser of Apple’s new Dubai Mall retail store on Twitter last week, Apple on Thursday announced that the store will open later this month on Thursday 27th April 2017.
The new retail location which will be Apple’s third Apple Store in the UAE since late 2015 will be in a very high traffic area with 92 million visitors reported in 2015. The construction facade currently sournounding the store showcases 35 local enterprises on a mural wall that “tells the story of the creative community from start-ups, independent art galleries and local app developers, to boutiques, cafes and food trucks we all know and love”, Apple said.
The store will have longer than usual opening hours, open between 10:00am – 11:00pm on Monday, Tuesday Wednesday and Sunday and between 10:00am – 11:59pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
