Apple Store In Düsseldorf, Germany Will Open This Saturday


Two years after the rumors first started swirling, and months after the company began recruiting retail staff, Apple has confirmed on its official website that a new Apple Store is indeed opening in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The Apple Store — which will be Germany’s thirteenth — will open its doors for the first time this Satuday, December 14 at 10am local time.

The first 1,000 visitors will reportedly receive a free Apple t-shirt. (If it’s anything like the opening of the opening of the Berlin store earlier this year — where lines were already wrapping around the block 10 hours before opening — you may want to get there early.)

The store is situated in the upmarket Kö-Bogen shopping center, in the city’s Königsallee area. The area is already home to stores from a number of luxury brands including Hugo Boss, Prada, Armani, and Tiffany & Co.

Apple currently has more than 400 retail stores worldwide, and plans to open a further 30 over the coming 12 months.

A Hanover Apple Store is supposedly in the works.

    The 21th of December I will be in Dusseldorf. I will surely check that store out.
