Apple's fifth retail store in London
Apple is set to open its fifth retail store in London, with a new establishment located in the city's busy Covent Garden district. Customers can begin flooding the store beginning Saturday, August 7 for the grand opening.
The store is said to be the most expensive and largest building in Apple's entire lineup, according to ifoAppleStore. The 1870s building has reportedly retained many of the original architectural features, including stone from a quarry in Wales. The historic aspects have been paired with Apple's signature glass staircase and wood display tables.
