Some photos have leaked showing Apple’s first Turkish physical retail store days before it opens.
The images were posted to Instagram by user orbaygumus, and depict a large cuboid glass structure, similar to the glass installations at Apple Stores in New York and Shanghai. All that is currently missing is a giant Apple logo.
Apple’s Istanbul Store is set to open its doors at 10am local time on Saturday, April 5 — located in the city’s high end Zorlu Shopping Center. Tim Cook is expected to attend the opening, alongside Turkish president Abdullah Gül.
The store reportedly covers 21,500-square-feet of space, and includes a showroom floor, special event areas, and dual Genius Bars.
Apple got its first online Apple Store back in November, while earlier this year a team of Apple executives met with Turkish president Gül today to discuss a deal that could see the 15 million iPads introduced to Turkish schools.Related
