Apple has opened its first brick-and-mortar store in Malaysia at The Exchange TRX, luring hundreds of people who queued up for their first visit. 

The location, announced last month, is Apple’s sixth store in the region, following three in Singapore and two in Thailand.

“Being able to support and directly connect with a new community is always a special experience for our retail teams, and we can’t wait to welcome customers to this beautiful space designed for discovery, creativity, and shopping for the world’s most innovative products,” said Deirdre O’Brien, Apple’s senior VP of Retail.

The store has three storeys and connects the mall’s central atrium with a rooftop park that winds around the upper level.

The store’s front and quartz staircase are both made of glass. The Forum, which houses Today at Apple programmes, is situated on a floating deck. 

The Apple The Exchange TRX, like all other Apple facilities, is powered by renewable energy and is carbon neutral. The store features natural stone walls, polished stainless-steel columns, light terrazzo flooring, and a timber ceiling.
