Apple’s 300th Retail Store

This Saturday Apple will open the doors to its 300th retail store and this one is sure to be an eye-opener.

The retail outlet, in London’s Covent Garden, will actually be the fourth in London. Scheduled to open at 10 a.m. GMT, this store will have the biggest staff (300 employees), the longest Genius Bar, an elegant interior, restored from Welsh stone and English oak, with exposed brick walls and two of the “signature” glass interior staircases.

How big is this place? According to estimates, the entire Fifth Avenue store in New York City could fit inside its three-story central courtyard. Don’t believe me? Check out these insider videos showing the inside and outside of the store prior to this weekend’s grand opening.



Happy shopping !
