Apple today provided updates on a few retail stores opening soon, including locations in Thailand and Texas (via Storeteller.de). In Thailand, Apple will open a store in the Iconsiam mall, which is described as a mixed-use development that will include two malls, multiple hotels, and residences when it opens on November 9.

Apple Iconsiam will open one day later on November 10 at 10 a.m. local time. The new Bangkok location sits directly on the banks of the Chao Phraya river. This marks Apple's first retail store in Thailand, and its second in Southeast Asia, following its Singapore location that opened in May.

In the United States, Apple Southlake Town Square in Texas is planned for a grand reopening on November 3 at 10 a.m. local time. The location has been under renovation since April, and when it opens in early November it will gain all of the modernization updates that Apple has been rolling out to many of its older retail locations.

As a few other quick mentions, Apple will have two grand reopenings taking place tomorrow, October 26 in Tokyo and London. Apple Shibuya in Tokyo has been closed for nearly a year for renovations, while Apple Covent Garden in London has been closed for about four months.

The Covent Garden store will open at 10 a.m. local time Friday morning, while Apple Shibuya will open its doors at 8 a.m. local time. Both locations are seeing grand reopenings just in time for the worldwide launch of the new iPhone XR.

I'm amazed Apple is replicating the stone staircases elsewhere. so costly but very beautiful.

New York.
The Shibuya store is very surprising. I don’t think any of the remodeled or newly opened next generation stores have 3 floors.

I’m surprised they didn’t move to a new location. They don’t have the video wall either.

Very nice looking store, but their decisions are very interesting.

There’s not enough photo to judge much at this point. You’re likely looking at the building behind the Apple store entryway and think it’s part of it.
Plus, it's entirely possible the dark wall with the modified Apple logo is actually a glass wall with a "under construction " covering over it, and it will look much more like recent glass-front Apple stores when it opens.

I'm a rolling stone.

And, it isn't as cool as the OP said, I think it Fugly.

I prefer those stores in old buildings in Europe, they look so much better than the one above.
