Although it seems unbelievable and also clashes with what Rita Barberá said recently in Valencia, the newspaper La Vanguardia has published today data from, according to the source, “the third Apple Store in Spain” and the second in Barcelona . This store, which would be one of the so-called Significant Stores, would be located at no more and no less than number 1 of Paseo de Gracia , on the corner with Plaza Cataluña.
Apple is said to have signed a 10-year contract with the owners of the premises for EUR 3.8 million per year. If true, the resulting Apple Store would have a surface area of 2,500 square meters (almost double that of La Maquinista’s Apple Store) distributed over two floors: a ground floor of 800 square meters and what was once Banesto’s headquarters in a basement.
In addition to this, Apple would have a height of six meters from the main facade for decoration. As for the opening date, the source indicates that will open in less than a month (it would be surprising if it opened so soon); so it would be ahead of the Valencian store. What I can say for sure and as someone who lives in Barcelona is that this location is simply unbeatable. Thank you very much to all of you who sent us the news!
