Amsterdam set to get first Dutch Apple Store

updated 10:45 am EST, Mon November 29, 2010

Company already hiring?

Apple is planning to open its first Dutch retail store in Amsterdam, a local website claims. Citing several sources, One More Thing says that Apple has leased the ground floor and mezzanine of the Hirsch Building, found at Leidseplein 29. In August of last year Apple is reported to have leased upper-floor offices for local operations; the ground floor recently went vacant, however, and was filled only by a temporary art exhibit.

The building is said to date back to 1909, and bear traits in common with the Paris Opéra Apple Store in France. Masonry columns help support a high ceiling, and skylights should provide natural illumination during the day. The exterior is said to have stone arches, a copper dome and wrought-iron balcony railings. Apple is allegedly already hiring for the store, which could launch by mid-2011.

    Welcome Apple !!

    The Mac-success has made Amsterdam's Apple official retailers a bit 'off' on service. So an official Mac store, with a Genius bar and the customer experience we Amsterdammers only know from abroad... is more than welcome. Great location too, by the way.
