Watch out Samsung! The first Apple Store in South Korea will be in your hometown city
Local news agency Yonhap says that construction is taking place in a southern district of Seoul. The Store should be open for business this coming November, according to the same report. Currently, South Korean consumers can buy the iPhone through re-sellers and from Apple's online store.
Reportedly, Apple considered other locations like Gangnam and Garosu-gil. The latter is a tree-lined street full of bars, restaurants, cafes and bookstores. Despite the off-beat atmosphere, Apple decided to build its first South Korean Apple Store in Seoul, which is the capital of the country.
