Location to be company's first in Paris
Apple has confirmed the November 7th opening for its retail store located at the Carousel du Louvre. Like many Apple Store openings, the first 5,000 visitors will get a free t-shirt. Customers will be able to check out products on the bottom level, which includes a special area focused on the iPhone. A second floor hosts services such as educational workshops.
Photos of the Louvre building, provided by macgeneration, show the company's typical glass and stainless elements, with a spiral staircase connecting both levels.
Reports suggest Apple is set to debut several other locations in France, including Montpellier, although the exact opening dates have yet to be confirmed.
