Apple chooses Thailand for its second retail store in Southeast Asia

“Apple continues to increase its efforts in Southeast Asia’s fast-growing market after it picked Thailand as the location for its second Apple Store in the region,” Jon Russell reports for TechCrunch.

“A post on Apple’s website reveals that it will operate a retail store at the soon-to-open Iconsiam which is set to become Bangkok’s largest mall when it opens next month,” Russell reports. “The Apple Store is set to open its doors on November 10.”

Russell reports, “The new store follows the opening of an Apple Store in Singapore last year, which marked the U.S. firm’s first official brick and mortar presence in Southeast Asia, a region of 650 million consumers that has more internet users than the U.S. population.”

  1. What’s up with that Logo, what does that mean?

    We’re finally getting an Apple Store in Downtown Los Angeles. An old theater house is being converted. Within quick walking distance. Great place to meet women. Wait for the Genius to give them the bad news, then tell them “Oh I can fix that for nothing.” Hand’em a card.

  2. This is great news, and this Apple Store in Bangkok will be a success. How is Apple doing in India, i hear nothing from Apple or anybody about what a great market India is for Apple. Where are the Pro Indians now, the silence is deafening.
