A new image posted online shows that Apple is gearing up to open its second Apple Store in Taiwan. The photo shows that Apple has erected its customary white construction barriers around the new store, complete with Apple branding.
The new retail outlet is located at the bottom of the Xinyi A13 shopping mall in Taipei’s commercial hub District. From the look of things, the store has a roof design reminiscent of its Chicago flagship store.
Apple frequently uses neat localization flourishes, such as murals, for its construction barriers. In this case, it’s no different. The Apple logo incorporates the “Tai” character of the word “Taipei.” The other characters refer to “creativity,” a big focus of Apple’s.
Apple has yet to reveal exactly when it will be opening the new store. Apple’s first brick-and-mortar retail store opened in Taiwan in July 2017. It is located on the ground floor of Taiwan’s iconic Taipei 101 skyscraper in the Xinyi District. This was the world’s tallest building before it was overtaken by Dubai’s Burj Khalifa in 2009.
We’ll make sure to follow up with new information on the Xinyi Apple Store as we hear it.
