Job listings suggest second Belgian Apple Store on the way, in Antwerp

Apple recently confirmed that it’s opening its first Apple Store in Belgium, in the capital Brussels. Job listings spotted by Dutch site iCulture suggest that a second Belgian store will follow, in Antwerp.

According to the job descriptions, Apple is looking for staff in the “province of Antwerp.” An exact city or location is not listed, but linked with the vacancy is a map of the city of Antwerp indicating that the store will be located in the center of Antwerp and not in a mall outside of town.

One suggested location has been the former Trade Fair building (above), due to be refurbished as a Marriott hotel with possible retail space beneath.

Apple is set to open the world’s largest Apple Store in Dubai later this year. The company is also preparing to finally make the Apple Watch available for sale in its retail stores.
