Singapore looks set to get her third Apple store, this time with special bragging rights Apple Marina Bay Sands will be the first store in the world to sit entirely on water.

Located at Marina Bay Singapore, the new outlet will take the place of former nightclub Avalon, which ceased operations in 2016. Besides being a floating store, Apple Marina Bay Sands will also be the first store housed in a sphere-like structure. We think it fits in perfectly with the iconic Marina Bay skyline in the background!

At the heart of creativity

The new store follows the other two existing outlets in Singapore, the first being at Knightsbridge Mall along Orchard Road, itself a history maker by being the first Apple outlet in Southeast Asia in 2017, and the second in Jewel Changi Airport.

While no exact opening date has been released, Apple did reveal that the new store is set to be “at the heart of creativity” and will strive to be “a space for you to explore, connect and create something new”.

“Apple Marina Bay Sands is coming soon to Singapore, celebrating the first Apple store in the world that sits on the water,” an Apple spokesman said.

“As with every Apple store around the world, Apple Marina Bay Sands will bring the best of Apple to our customers, at an iconic location in Singapore. We can’t wait to see you soon.”

Apple Marina Bay Sands a beacon of hope in choppy waters

The news of the launch will be music to the ears of Apple fans. In times of COVID-19, the sight of brands exerting their presence is encouraging. It also offers yet another outlet for fans to get their hands on the latest Apple products.
