    Apple Could Be Planning to Open Stores in India and Inside Harrods UK


    According to a story on MacRumors today, based on a report in Indian business publication Mint, Apple may be on the verge of opening retail stores in India. This is as a result of the Indian government permitting full ownership of single-brand retail stores by foreign businesses. Mint says that Apple has been in talks with India’s Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) for a while now, with an eye to making another attempt to get a foothold in the Indian market, which it last tried to do in 2006. This information was imparted to Mint by an anonymous DIPP official. Previous to this new ruling, single-brand retail outlets would have had to have had a minimum of 49% domestic investment in the company if they wanted to own stores in India.

    9to5 Mac has another story about possible new retail outlets, reporting that according to sources within Harrods company, which runs the prestigious Harrods store in London, Apple is looking to place a store-in-store within the famous store, similar to the arrangements in Best Buy and the newly announced Target store-in-stores. 9to5 Mac says that the store will be smaller than Apple’s regular retail stores, but much bigger than the Best Buy Apple store-in-stores.
