The great country in the world that has resisted Apple in recent years has certainly been India. With one of the largest populations in the world and incredible growth economically speaking, India is ideal for investing and selling products .
Due to local government laws, if Apple wants to sell its products in India it must first manufacture a part of them there. Through this protectionist law, India ensures that companies will invest in local industry. Well, Apple is already doing that, thousands and thousands of iPhone units are being manufactured every day in India since a few months. The next step? To open several Apple stores in the country .
As indicated by Patently Apple, the company has plans to open stores in New Delhi and Bangalore. But what is really important is the size of these stores, because according to rumors, will be able to reach more than 1,000 square meters, twice as big as the Apple Store in the rest of the world . The population of India is considerable, and for such a population considerable stores are also needed.
We do not yet know if these stores will continue with the design of the new generation Apple stores or adapt a new format to better fit a space of more than a thousand square meters. However, everything seems to indicate that they will opt for glass to cover the stores, similar to the Apple Store in Chicago or the Apple store on Fifth Avenue in New York.
There is talk of the possibility that these stores are so incredible that they are considered a tourist attraction in the country. We will see if it comes to such a concept, but what is clear is that Apple’s commitment to India is strong . The efforts made over the past year to reach agreements with the Indian government have borne fruit, and now it is a matter of seeing the results little by little.
