Dubai: Shoppers are expected to make a beeline for the unveiling of one of the most-loved tech brand’s latest retail location in Dubai this month, which is expected to be the biggest in the UAE.
Apple’s first two-level shop in the emirate will open its doors on April 27, 4pm in Dubai Mall, and fans can expect more than just a display of gadgets. The American company will also be hosting free workshops at its newest outlet, as well as learning camps and field trips for young customers.
“The Apple Store is much more than a store. It’s a place to learn about your Apple device. And a place to discover your creative side,” the tech giant said on its website that features information about its upcoming shop.
The company had earlier unveiled a giant mural surrounding its storefront in Dubai Mall, as a preview to this month’s grand opening.
The artwork, showcasing the UAE’s creative community from start-ups, independent art galleries and local app developers, cues shoppers in on what the store will be like: a “meeting point for the creative-minded people, and a place of learning and inspiration.”
Apple’s newest store is centrally located, sitting next to an array of restaurants and other retail outlets, and will offer fans great views of the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Fountain.
It’s the third Apple store to open in the UAE. In 2015, the company opened two outlets in Dubai’s Mall of the Emirates and Abu Dhabi’s Yas Mall.
