“Angela Ahrendts, Senior Vice President of Retail and Wendy Beckman, Head of Retail Europe hosted the media opening of the company’s flagship London retail store on Regent Street this morning,” Jonny Evans reports for Apple Must. “With over 60 million customers since it first opened 12-year’s ago, the opening should interest every Apple customer. ‘We’re proud to have been a part of its growth into one of the premier retail streets in London and the world,’ the executives said.”
“The store brings in what we’ve seen Apple weave across its stores,” Evans reports, “including the Avenue, Boardroom, Forum and other concepts introduced San Francisco, Union Square, earlier this year.”
“Apple says it wants to make its stores part of their local community,” Evans reports. “It hopes to express this at Regent Street by providing numerous creative events, including live music, art, and curated photo walks around the local areas during which it will teach people outdoor photography techniques… Apple has a range of in-store events planned at Regent Street, you’ll find out more on this here.”
