Apple to open new flagship retail store in Jerusalem

Apple to develop religious land

Apple is planning on opening a new flagship store at the entrance of Jerusalem which will play host to the first Apple digital library, new reports from the Jerusalem Post have revealed.

The 50,000 square foot store, which will reportedly be ready to open its doors within the next three years, is said to be in the works to coincide with plans to build a new "15-screen, 25 million cinema multiplex, called Cinema City, located in the same area,” the Jerusalem Post reports.

Whilst the exact purpose of a possible Apple digital library is currently unknown, it has been claimed that the site will trial public access to digital eBooks, movies and music content free of charge. Apple directors touring the proposed site are claimed to have cited “symbolic reasons” for why they are looking to open a Jerusalem based store.

Having launched the iPad 2 in the UK and 25 other countries across the world last Friday, March 25th, Apple has since been faced with stock shortages with neither of the company’s leading London based stores, on Regent Street and in Covent Garden, currently able to offer the second-generation device that touts dual-cameras, a new dual-core processor and a slimmer, lighter form factor to that of its market dominating predecessor.

Is Apple’s move into such an iconic location a smart or foolhardy tactic? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
