Mexico City

Scheduled to open its doors earlier this year, the first flagship (big street store) of Apple in Latin America should open only in September, after undergoing a major internal overhaul, as disclosed by AppleInsider.

In fact, this will be the second Apple store in Mexico, which until then had only one Retail Store in Cuajimalpa de Morelos (Apple Vía Santa Fe), one of Mexico City’s districts.

The new store will be part of the Antara Fashion Hall complex, a high-end shopping center in the Mexican capital located between the Soumaya and Jumex museums; this means that the region attracts not only residents, but also a lot of tourists.

Like most flagships company, the thriving Apple Store in the Mexican capital will feature Apple’s new design and retail technology, including new product displays, a Video Wall and sessions of Today at Apple.
