If sources of Khaleej Times are to be believed, Apple is all set to open its first retail store in Dubai in August 2015.
The store will be located at level 2 of the Mall of the Emirates and is estimated to be 50,000-square foot big. This will make it Apple’s largest store in the world along with the company’s first store in the Middle East.
Apple’s first store in the Middle East will be located at Mall of the Emirates and it will be the world’s largest retail store of the iPhone maker, sources have confirmed to Khaleej Times.
Apple is also expected to open its second store in UAE in Abu Dhabi’s Yas Mall.
Apple had opened its regional headquarters in Dubai earlier this year, and has since then hired several people to look after sales, marketing and retail in the country.
Apple and Samsung dominate the high-end market in Dubai, though the latter is slightly ahead in terms of market share. The launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have boosted Apple’s popularity in Dubai, and the opening of its first store in the country will further help increase its popularity among consumers in the country.[Via Khaleej Times]
