While Apple enthusiasts have been asking for an authorised Apple Store in India for a while now, the possibility still seems to be far fetched. This is because Apple is unable to meet the local sourcing requirements for opening a store in India. However, the next logical step is already here. The largest Apple Premium Reseller (APR) partner, Aptronix has opened the doors to its flagship store in Mumbai today.
Located in High Street Phoenix in Mumbai, the flagship store is sprawled across 8,000 square feet and has two floors. Aptronix collaborated with Bombay Duck Designs to create a designer store painted in iconic black, white and silver hues. The store aims of becoming a ‘House of Creativity’ for Apple users by offering workshops across photography, filmmaking, music creation, art and design amongst others. The retailer will also offer ‘Club Aptronix Membership’, which will get members free insurance, free home delivery, at home service and training, and first access during new product launches. The customers at the flagship store will also get premium bank tie-ups and community space. Apart from these, Aptronix also announced the launch of an app that will allow users to access this membership, book appointments for services online and avail an array of numerous products and services.
Sutinder Singh, Founder, Aptronix (Premium Lifestyle & Fashion India Pvt. Ltd.)said, “Apple leads the world in innovation with its products such as iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV. We are excited to offer these products to our customers at our first flagship store along with special services that will simplify after-sales assistance. Our goal is to make Aptronix the best retail brand in India.”
The store has already opened in Mumbai and will be open seven days a week from 10.30am to 9.30pm. Aptronix is also offering customers at the flagship store 15 percent cashback if they use a CitiBank card.
