Singapore may be waiting a little while longer to get its first Apple store. Work first started on the new location back in July, and it was expected to be completely by the end of October. A notice at the site now confirms building work will continue until late January.
Like it does before any of its media events, Apple has taken down its online store ahead of its ‘Hello Again’ event later today. The Cupertino company is expected to announce its new refreshed MacBook lineup at the event along with updates to their existing services.
During an interview at the Fortune 2016 Most Powerful Women Summit this week, Apple retail chief Angela Ahrendts shared her vision of turning the company’s popular stores into thriving communities. “The store is now the biggest product we produce,” she said.
Apple has set its sights on redesigning many of its stores, which includes removing some signage altogether, and many other key changes.
Apple is renowned for its stellar customer service, but not everyone gets what they want at the Apple store. One French customer was filmed smashing display iPhones and other products at a store in Dijon after being refused a refund.
Apple Makes Major Changes to Positions in Its Retail Stores; Introduces New Ones for Faster Service Times
Apple has made some major internal changes to its retail store positions and layouts as per a report from MacRumors. The company held meetings with its retail employees to inform them about the changes.
The “Apple Store” has been a familiar brand for the Cupertino-based company for quite some time, but things are changing.
At the tail-end of July, a report surfaced that outlined Apple’s rumored changes for its official iOS Apple Store app.
Considering the foot traffic that most Apple retail stores see, the chances that some employees have some extravagant stories are probably pretty high.
The Apple Store iOS app is said to be in line to get a major update in the near future, which will bring customer recommendations into the fold.
