Tech giant Apple is reportedly opening two more stores in Singapore in the coming months.
According to sources close to The Straits Times, the two stores will be located at Jewel Changi Airport and Marina Bay Sands (MBS).
The outlet at Jewel Changi Airport, according to a source close to the development, will not be ready for its exclusive sneak peek from 11 April to 16 April, but “may open as early as 17 April to coincide with Jewel’s public opening”.
The same source added that, true to Apple’s “notoriously secretive” approach when it comes to store plans, tenants at Jewel “cannot even see the state of Apple’s renovation”.
As for the MBS outlet, a “dome-like structure has emerged from the water”, and that is reportedly where the third Apple flagship store will be located.
The previous tenant of the so-called “island” store was a nightclub, and is linked to the MBS shopping section via an underwater passageway.
A quick check shows that there are currently 18 retail positions for “various locations within Singapore” up for grabs.
If the rumours are true, the new Apple stores would also be serving large Southeast Asian markets like Malaysia, India, and Indonesia.
Apple, Jewel Changi Airport, and MBS declined to comment when contacted by The Straits Times.
