The New Apple Store in Covent Garden - London

It stays light later here in London because we are so far north. It is 9:30 and still light out. We took a walk from the flat about 8 blocks to Covent Garden. This is the theatre district of London. Smack dab in the middle of the area is the new Apple Store. It is right near the Covent Garden Tube Station.

Each sales station had a computer and a permanently mounted ipad that told about the product. The sales pitch could be changed at any time on the ipad.

Glass steps go up to the second - third - and fourth floors - and a glass roof.

Note the permanently mounted ipad sales monitor at each station. It was not as crowded as the other Apple Store across town a bit - last year.

The new Apple Store in Covent Gardens - London - has a glass roof.

It is an old building - they matched the new details to the old details. It is 4 stories with wide expanses cascading down one upon the other. The higher up you went - the less people there were.

The front is protected by a wide collonnade. Note the black Apple sign and several open wide and high doors.

It was 8 PM and definitely too hot for the sweatshirt. I thought it would cool off at night. Apple products are more expensive over here than in the USA.

Behind me taking this picture - was the Covent Garden Marketplace. This picture was taken at 8:30 PM - still very light out.
