Apple Orchard Road is finally opening on the 27th May

This will be the tech powerhouse’s first retail store in Singapore and Southeast Asia.

After several false alarms and multiple unclaimed rumours, Apple announced the opening date to be 27th May Saturday. They also invited the public to join them at 10:00am on that day for the grand opening of the store.

During the opening weekend, expect live acoustic performances in the Forum by Singapore Idol winner Sezairi and a guided Photo Walk featuring work by local famed photographer Aik Beng Chia. Like all other stores around the world, Apple tends to make their retail space a creative hub and a place for local artists to gather as a community and share ideas & inspirations. With the two opening line-ups featuring Singaporean creatives, it is setting up to be a space that is more than just retail. Let’s start the countdown, one more week to the opening.
