Apple to open 4th retail store in South Korea this month

(Source: Korea Bizwire)

US tech giant Apple said it plans to open its fourth retail store in South Korea later this month, expanding its presence in the country to compete with local rival Samsung Electronics Co.

Named “Apple Jamsil,” the store will open at Lotte World Mall in Seoul’s southeastern neighbourhood of Jamsil on September 24, the company said.

Apple’s Korean website opened a special menu announcing the store’s opening.

Apple opened its first South Korean store in Seoul’s posh southern district of Gangnam in January 2018, followed by two more Seoul stores in Yeouido and Myeongdong in February last year and last April, respectively.
