Apple has notified staff members at its massive Covent Garden retail store in London that the store will be closing early next Tuesday in order to accommodate a press gathering to view a simulcast of Apple's "Let's Talk iPhone" media event. The store will be closing at 3:30 PM on Tuesday, significantly earlier than its usual 9:00 PM closing time. The media event will begin at 6:00 PM London time.
Hello Team,Apple has in the past hosted press gatherings in London for its media events, although they have generally been held in off-site locations and not at any of Apple's retail stores.
As we begin to start a very exciting quarter in Apple Retail, I am pleased to let you know that our Covent Garden Store will be hosting a keynote streaming event next Tuesday 4th October. This event will be a press only event and currently we have no further details on what will be presented. The store will be closing at 3.30pm to accommodate this.
This is a really exciting event for our store and we are passionate about delivering an outstanding Covent Garden experience.
