First Photos of Apple's New Covent Garden Retail Store in London
Electric Pig has managed to snap some of the first photos of Apple's Covent Garden retail store in London. The new store was announced last week and is Apple's largest store by total square footage.
Spread over two floors, the Apple Store Covent Garden features beautifully restored masonry, with stone arches inside and out. It's a masterful blend of old and new, which suits the environs of Covent Garden perfectly.The London Evening Standard reports that customers will enter through an eight-bay arcade marked by 20-foot stone arches and lit with restored gas lamps. The company has said to have taken pains to preserve the architecture while restoring the building.

The store will be open to the press tomorrow with the public opening on Saturday. Electric Pig has a gallery of 10 shots of the exterior of the new store.
