Apple’s highly anticipated flagship store, Apple Battersea, has finally opened its doors in London’s iconic Battersea Power Station. This week, I was on hand to share the moment with our members –
While exploring the new store of course I had to take a few photos ready for our next meeting, but this time The London Mac User Group, also offered some help to AppleInsider and Writer William Gallagher 🙂
Join Us for next Month’s meeting for all the details…
The revamped power station, known for its appearances on Pink Floyd’s “Animals” album cover and in a 1964 “Doctor Who” episode, now houses the new Apple store and offices. The opening of the store attracted hundreds of visitors, who eagerly explored the impressive two-level shopping area with its balcony and bridge. Prior to the opening, crowds gathered on the balcony, eagerly anticipating their first glimpse of the store below. Inside the store, visitors were greeted by the familiar sight of an antique Macintosh Classic II, retrofitted with modern hardware, a common feature in recent Apple Store openings. The store’s interior design reflects Apple’s latest aesthetic, reminiscent of the recently updated Tysons’ Corner store. While Apple CEO Tim Cook and Head of Retail Deirdre O’Brien have yet to visit the store, Cook did tour the site in September 2022.
