Crowds turn out for Apple’s second India store
Tim Cook and Deirdre O’Brien have officially opened Apple Saket, Apple’s second-ever store in India, and its first in the capital, New Delhi.
Unlike Apple BKC with its distinctive Apple-designed architecture, the new store is situated in the existing Citywalk Mall. Consequently, Apple has so far been at most promoting its interior design, and referring to the store’s “uniquely designed curved storefront,” but now Tim Cook has tweeted images including a glimpse of that entrance.
“We’re thrilled to bring the best of Apple to our customers in Delhi with the opening of our second store in India, Apple Saket,” said Deirdre O’Brien, head of retail, in a statement before the opening. “Our incredible team members look forward to connecting with the local community and helping them find new ways to pursue their passions and unleash their creativity through our amazing products and services.”
While in India to see the opening of Apple’s first two stores there, Tim Cook has also been touring the country as he visits artists, developers, schools, and the Indian Prime Minister.
