Apple Opening Retail Store in Edinburgh, Scotland Soon

Apple this morning unveiled an artistic multi-colored barrier around its forthcoming location in Edinburgh, Scotland, signaling that it will soon open its first store in the country's capital city, reports the Edinburgh Evening News (via ifoAppleStore).

The store will be located on the historic Princes Street, with inside sources saying that the location's opening is "imminent." Based on the similar patterns of the Madrid Apple Store before its opening, ifoAppleStore's Gary Allen believes that the location could open on August 2nd.

The Princes Street store will also join Apple's other locations in Scotland, which include the existing Braehead store and the company's Buchanan Street location in Glasgow. The new location will also be Apple's 38th in the United Kingdom since the company first opened a shop on London's Regent Street in 2004.

Their 38th store in the UK?

Two in Glasgow and one in Aberdeen? You'd have thought Princes Street would have been their #1 go to location in Scotland.

Open one in the Republic of Ireland!

*checks again*

How odd. Is there a reason that there's not a store in Dublin?

Absolutely agree ! With all that cash we launder for them it wouldn't hurt to leave a few behind 😉

Only one on the whole island is Belfast ! They should be taking advantage of wobbly Microsoft situation with no more Xp and dodgy 8.1

Finally! An Edinburgh store has been a long time coming!

Now I will never have to visit Glasgow ever again ;-)

I seriously can't believe how long it's taken for Apple to announce a store in Edinburgh.

I remember being up there in 2001, as a student, around the same time as Apple announced their first US store, and the local Edinburgh resellers thought an Edinburgh store would be 'imminent'.....13 years ago :)

In fact, one of the biggest resellers was reluctant to move to a bigger store, simply as they feared this imminent official Apple Edinburgh store!

About time but like a couple of you mentioned it was probably due to the extended tram works on Princes Street, it's been a mess for years!

I live in Northumberland (not too far away) and I've been travelling in to Edinburgh year after year and the level of work and disruption on Princes Street surprised me every time. Glad to see Edinburgh is getting back to its best! :)


Hopefully better than it's (previous) best since most other cities I visit seem to be progressing better and quicker than us!

That's weird - you'd think they'd have one in Cork considering it has Apple offices there. (I'm assuming the one store is in Dublin?)

Hmmmm...


Nope ,the actual Apple. Store is in Belfast . There are only 1 or 2 little boutiques in Dublin eg. Small area in Arnotts shop and also Compu-B who are quite poorly stocked and very overpriced .
