Tim Cook Visits China Ahead of New Apple Store Opening in Shanghai

Apple CEO Tim Cook is touring Shanghai, China this week, meeting with retail employees, suppliers, developers, the film industry, and others. He has been sharing photos from his trip on Chinese social media platform Weibo.

Cook’s visit is timed with the upcoming grand opening of Apple’s new Jing’an store in Shanghai on Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m. local time.

Apple provided more details about the store in a recent press release.

“Located next to the landmark Jing’an Temple, Apple Jing’an is a must-see destination in Shanghai,” said Apple. “Approaching the store through a grove of maple trees that line the upper plaza, visitors are treated to a stunning view of the temple. As customers descend down the stairs, they pass by terracing, double-curved walls that extend forward in a circle to form amphitheater seating that will host Today at Apple sessions specially created for Apple Jing’an to celebrate the community and its creators.”

A custom wallpaper with a flower-like Apple logo is available for download for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac on the store’s page.

Those who attend the grand opening of Apple Jing’an will receive a custom tote bag, pin, and Apple logo sticker, according to Michael Steeber’s weekly newsletter about Apple’s retail stores. His newsletter provides a closer look at the store’s design.
