Apple will inaugurate its first retail store in Taiwan this Saturday, July 1. Located on the ground floor of Taipei 101 skyscraper, Apple Taipei 101 will open doors to customers at 11am on July 1. The retail store features Apple’s latest store design, with 130 highly trained store team members.
Apple announced the store location with a barricade of hand-cut fabric by Taiwanese artist Yang Shih-Yi earlier this month. The art piece depicts the Banyan tree, a traditional meeting place for the locale.
The Forum, centered around the video wall, is a vibrant gathering space and home to the new “Today at Apple” sessions. Avenues, inspired by window displays along a shopping street, line the store walls with interactive displays dedicated to music, creativity, photography, apps and more. Apple Taipei 101 will also offer hands-on training to entrepreneurs, developers and other business customers in The Boardroom.
Apple Taipei 101 will introduce customers in Taiwan to the company’s products, services and in-store experiences. It will also host new “Today at Apple” programs, offering more than 60 free hands-on sessions to customers.
