Apple is giving the finishing touch to great inauguration of its fourth shop in Madrid, inside an iconic building on the Puerta del Sol square. On Tuesday morning, the giant firm placed a billboard on the exterior wall of the building saying: “Apple Store, Puerta del Sol. Muy Pronto.” (Coming soon, translator´s note).
The company has not specified the exact date of the opening, however it is conjectured its door will open in mid-June.
It took 12 days for the Apple shop on the Paseo de Gracia street in Barcelona to welcome clients after having hanged a similar advertisement.
Since 2011 the property at the Puerta del Sol has been refurbished after many years of housing the Hotel Madrid. The to-open Apple Store will be the biggest in Spain with an over 6.000 square meter area distributed over seven floors.
