At the moment, not many details are known about the new Apple Store, but the opening is practically assured for next December 30th . Apple has sent a press release informing about it:

We’ve finished all the important interior decorations in the Apple Store and only have one simple task left. Unless there are special problems in the final stage of construction, it will open on December 30th from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on the day.

This new store, will have almost 1,300 square meters divided into two levels, the main floor and a basement. We don’t have many more details about it yet, but we will surely know more as the week goes on.

Earlier this year, we heard rumors about this new opening. Specifically, it is the first Apple store to open in a country dominated by Samsung or LG , with a market share of 80%, a tough competition for Cupertino.

The forecast of the new store in South Korea, we could notice it with the launch of the iPhone X in this country, where Apple had already begun the works of the new Apple Store , where we visited that is very close to Samsung’s headquarters.

What do you think about Apple having its first store near the Samsung headquarters? Can it harm or benefit some of the brands?
