It is confirmed that Apple is going to have its very first Apple Store in Southeast Asia, in Singapore. Tech in Asia first reported this piece of news and today, Apple Senior Vice President for Retail and Online Stores, Angela Ahrendts confirmed the news. The Apple Store was formed in 2001 and opened its first store in Virginia. With 460 retail stores in 17 countries, Apple leads the US retail market in terms of sales per unit area with a global sales of US$16 billion. Apple is reportedly already hiring a team that will man the store and a retail space has been secured at Knightsbridge, Orchard Road. Apple currently contracts retailing to third-party licensed partners and carriers but for some time, Singapore has seen a number of first wave launches. With the Apple Store, Apple hopes to deliver the service, education and entertainment that is loved by Apple customers around the world.
