After a long build up, Apple’s first Eastern Europe/Asia Minor store opened up today in Istanbul at the Zorlu Center. As with some other flagship stores, it is mostly subterranean with a glass upward protrusion. This one has four large panes of glass covered by a white roof with a darker Apple logo surrounded by a fountain as pictured below.
Apple yesterday held a press event attended by one of the Apple Store leads Steve Cano. Tim Cook took to Twitter to announce the opening:
Teşekkür ederim to our customers in Istanbul and all the people of Turkey. pic.twitter.com/4xD4A2X06c— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) April 5, 2014
