A few days after the artwork on the barricade outside the unopened Apple store in Mumbai went viral, the tech giant announced that the store in the city’s Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) will open on April 18 and another one in New Delhi’s Saket will open two days later.
Apple BKC in Mumbai will welcome customers on April 18, while Apple Saket in Delhi will do so on April 20. This is excellent news for Apple fans in India. Tuesday, the Cupertino-based tech giant made the announcement.
Apple BKC will open on April 18 at 11 a.m. IST, while Apple Saket will open on April 20 at 10 a.m. This morning, the Apple Saket barrier was unveiled. Its design is influenced by Delhi’s numerous portals, each of which represents a new chapter in the city’s illustrious history.
The company said in a statement, “The vibrant artwork commemorates Apple’s second store in India, which is conveniently located in the nation’s capital.” According to the company, these new retail locations will offer consumers new opportunities to browse, discover, and purchase Apple products, in addition to exceptional service and experiences.
Customers may obtain exclusive wallpapers for Apple BKC and Apple Saket, as well as specially curated songs on Apple Music, prior to the grand opening.
According to the iPhone manufacturer, customers will be able to visit the store beginning on April 20 to discover Apple’s latest product lineup, find creative inspiration, and receive personalised service and support from the store’s staff of Specialists, Creatives, and Geniuses.
In celebration of the inauguration of the first Apple Store in India, Apple BKC has announced a special Today at Apple series entitled “Mumbai Rising” that will run from the day of the store’s grand opening through the summer. These sessions will bring together visitors, local artists, and creatives for hands-on activities with Apple’s products and services that celebrate the Mumbai community and culture.
The Apple BKC store was inspired by the Kaali Peeli cab art of Bombay. The design integrates vibrant interpretations of the decals as well as other Apple products and services that will be accessible to guests.
