Apple has officially opened the doors to its latest South Korean flagship in the heart of Seoul at the Lotte World Mall in the Songpa district. Apple Jamsil is the company’s fourth Apple Retail flagship in the country, following Apple Myeongdong earlier this year.
The new flagship store features floor-to-ceiling glass at the front of the store alongside the iconic glowing Apple logo. Like Apple’s retail stores in North America, Apple Jamsil features wooden tables and Avenues where customers can interact with the latest products and accessories.
According to the press release: “Apple Jamsil features wooden walls, tables, Apple logo glass facades, flooring, and graphic panels made from materials available in Korea.” Apple also mentions that Apple Jamsil, like its other retail stores, is powered by 100% renewable energy. “Apple Jamsil and its offices in South Korea operate on 100% renewable energy, practicing carbon neutrality.”
