The first Apple Store in Changsha, China will open on Saturday, 4th September 2021

Cupertino tech giant will open its first Apple Store in Changsha in the Hunan province of China on September 4, 2021. Located in the center of the provincial capital city, the soon to open Apple Changsha will provide “easy access for customers across central China.”
In 2020, Apple Sanlitun opened in Beijing, China. The new retail store was the “next iteration” of the company’s first store in China with more square feet to entertain a larger number of visitors in an aesthetically appealing exterior with high glass panels and exquisite woodwork. The company has experimented with new building materials and techniques in the new Changsha store.

Apple Changsha – the first Store in the world to utilize the façade technique

The company’s emphasis on design is not limited to its electronic products, Apple Stores around the world embody the same attention to detail to construct sustainable architectural marvels. Situated in the Changsha IFS shopping mall and looking over the Huangxing Road, the Apple Changsha Store is the company’s first store in the world to utilize the new façade technique.

Visitors entering the store from outside will encounter the uniquely designed double-height façade, which features a completely new gradient frit and mirrored coating treatment that blurs the transition from top to bottom and shifts in appearance during different times of day or seasons.


The new store has its dedicated spot for Forum with a freestanding video wall for face-to-face Today at Apple sessions, display tables and avenues, trained retail team members for customers assistance, and will offer the company’s trade-in program, and the newly launched Apple Pickup service.


The store will open doors for customers on Saturday, September 4, at 10 a.m. CST in China with COVID-19 health measures including a mask requirement, temperature checks, and social distancing.

Deirdre O’Brien, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail + People said:
“We are thrilled to be opening in Changsha, a community filled with creativity and profound cultural heritage. So many of our team members already call Hunan province home, and they are ready to welcome and support their neighborhood at Apple Changsha.”
