There are rumours that after many smart inventions lately by Xiaomi, the Chinese giant in phone making is working…
Living and working in Hong Kong, a city of hassle, you will never look at the shopping malls because they seem merged with your working environment. People were curious what happened fews months ago the ifc mall, one of the largest and landmark shopping mall located in the Central Business District, was undergoing some kind of huge construction over the bridge. Now, they know that the world’s leading phone and computer manufacterer has opened their flagship store in Hong Kong. It is the first ever Apple official store opens in Hong Kong after their store opened in China’s capital Beijing. Together with Shanghai Apple Store this is the biggest investment Apple ever had in China. It seems for our readers from foreign countries that buying this store is easy, yet it is obviously not. Originally this is like a footbridge with other chain stores like H&M… shops like that. But now Apple pay them to quit this area. I bet the compensation paid by Apple and the ifc mall must be sky-high. But, setting up such a landmark in a landmark shopping mall is surely what Apple was targeting. Like no other, this shop has a see through feature, inheriting what they have been doing for the store appliance worldwide.
Things inside the store is just organized in an Apple way. But, it seems so crowded with people and gadgets. The time I went to this shop was about 4:00 pm when most white-collar should be still working hard in the office. People here ranges from children to elderly, all fancy about Apple’s product.
Like other Apple Stores worldwide, this store has the Sales-iPad-in-glass for customers to navigate through the information in store and call their sales representatives. Staff over there are mainly Local people mixed some other ethic groups.
There you will see some huge advertisement about their new products and the question is where is iPhone 4S?
Like any other Apple Stores in your country, this store also has Genius bar, one to one tutorial, personal set up and Mac classes. From what I have seen here is a very crowded area where people are led by Apple staff to deal with their newly purchased Apple gadgets!Selling accessories, this store also gives customers a whole new experience in browsing mobile and macbook accessories. Such a line up of product is really impressive. People don’t have to shop on Apple online store with doubts anymore since they can now go to see it in person.
