There are some iconic Apple Store locations across the globe that are tourist spots in their own right. All people who stop by the store may not necessarily be there to purchase products but many are likely to visit just to see the store itself. Apple’s iconic Fifth Avenue store in New York City is one such location and its store on London’s Regent Street was another. Apple closed the store about a year ago for major renovations and has finally revealed that the flagship London store will be reopened on October 15th.
Apple first opened this Regent Street location in 2004 and the store went on to bring in more than four million visitors per year. It was even Apple’s largest retail store at one point in time so it’s definitely an important retail location for the company.
Award-winning architecture firm Foster and Partners was hired by Apple to redesign the store’s layout. While no official images have been shared as yet, reports suggest that the redesign has focused on prioritizing natural light and preserving the historic look of the building in which the store is housed.
Apple has confirmed today that it’s going to reopen its flagship London location on Regent Street at 10:00 am local time on Saturday, October 15th. The store will be opened one year after it was closed for major renovations.
