Fourth Switzerland Apple Store opens to large crowds

updated 04:06 am EDT, Sun July 13, 2014

Edinburgh store now predicted to open August 2

Despite the country's relatively small population, support for Apple in Switzerland seems to be very healthy: the company just opened its fourth outlet, this time in the town of Basel, earlier this weekend. The new store adheres to the standard new layout, but because of the shopping district it is located in, the store sports somewhat unusual operating hours. The next Apple Store unveiling will again be outside the US -- this time in Edinburgh, Scotland, and is thought to be opening on August 2.



The Basel store in Switzerland is in the Freie Strasse shopping and restaurant district, and will open from 9AM to 6:30PM Monday through Wednesday. On Thursdays and Fridays, the store will be open until 8PM, but on Saturday it will close at 6PM, and does not open at all on Sunday. The other Swiss Apple Stores are in Geneva, Wallinsellen and Zurich. As is traditional for store openings, large crowds assembled ahead of the store opening, and the company distributed commemorative t-shirts.



The forthcoming Edinburgh store will likely follow the same layout and design as the Basel store, and will be located on Princes Street. As with Switzerland, the new store will be the fourth for the country, following two in Glasgow and one in Aberdeen. The new store will be the first in Edinburgh, but the opening date has not officially been revealed. IfoAppleStore believes it will be August 2 based on the similarity of completion compared to a forthcoming store in Madrid, Spain.

    Despite the doomsayers claiming how Apple sales are dwindling, Apple continues to open up new stores and also increase the size of older stores. It doesn't make much sense to keep opening new stores if sales are dropping, so I really have to doubt some of the articles I come across about Apple's business going sour.

    iphonerulez: You don't know about all the Apple haters out there who say all kinds of ridiculous things and make stupid claims like the classic "Apple is doomed"?
