Beijing Apple store floods
An Apple Store located at The Village in the Sanlitun area of Beijing on Saturday suffered a flood that spread water across part of the ground level of the tri-level retail space. One manager claimed the water was from a fire hydrant malfunction, although the incident is currently still under investigation by the property management team. The store did manage to keep two levels running as normal through the flood, with access only blocked to the affected area.
The water covered less than half of the 10,700 square-foot Beijing store. Teams worked hard to clean up the mess and return business to usual, which they managed to do that same day.
Pictures of the flood were taken around 5:08 p.m. sometime after the incident began, while the picture of the dry floor was taken at roughly 6:20 p.m. No Macs received damage from the flood, according to the store manager.
