Exclusive: Apple in talks to open an Apple store in Jerusalem (Israel)


Apple is known for its Apple stores, both for the location and the architecture of the stores. In 2008, Apple opened the first store in Israel. Apple is considering a second store and the leading location is Jerusalem. The location is in the new entrance to the city (see picture), next to a first of its kind digital library. Eran Tur, from Apple Israel is driving this project. If Apple will go forward with the plan, then we can expect to see the opening in 2016.

    er, second? where is it’s first? Don’t tell me it calls iDigital an Apple Store!

    Apple has no presence in israel. iDigital, which are a high level reseller has opened a few stores that are similar in concept and architecture as apple stores.

    They are iDigital stores, not Apple stores. Eran Tur is not an Apple employee, he works for iDigital.

    iDigital is in no way connected to Apple. Apple customer service and technicians are pleasant, knowledgeable and honest. iDigital performs an essential service for mac and apple product owners in Israel but it is in no way an Apple store or affiliate.

    In Jerusalem there’s a store already that is much better quality than iDigital, who actually understand the whole philosophy of Apple stores, and can get things done that iDigitial doesn’t care enough to. They’re called Apple-Medix, and you can find them on Yaffo St. between the Iriyah and the Old City.

    And no, I’m not an employee.

    I know that iDigital is not a replacment for an Apple store, but it is better than nothing.

    I wasn’t aware of the Apple-Medix store, but from what you are saying it is worth checking.
